Part of Arches LIVE 2013

Wed 25 - Thu 26 Sep 2013 | Installation: From 6pm (free entry) | Performance: 9pm (30 mins) | £8/£6 - or buy a Festival Pass for £32/£26

N.B. The excellent value Arches LIVE Festival Pass (£32/£26) and Day Pass (£18/£12) are available now from the Arches Box Office – call us on 0141 565 1000 or visit in person at 253 Argyle Street to book. Alternatively, you can now book your festival pass online.

Calum MacAskill, with the local Poundland, will embark on a process of creating an improv performance with the random collection of objects available from the shop we love to hate: and YES, everything is a pound!

With a price limit of £49.99 for props and materials, this playful, light-hearted look at the crap we fill our lives with will take the form on an installation in The Arches Cafe Bar & Restaurant, followed by a half hour performance featuring props, puppets and masks, as well as music and video mixed from CDs and DVDs available from Poundland!

Back to Arches LIVE 2013.
