Let’s put our footprints in the world.
Let’s bend off the track most travelled.
Let’s mark it on the map.

Unfinished Place is an interactive performance and play space developed for and with 0-3 year olds and their carers.

“And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”

T.S. Eliot

About Into The New

Into The New is a festival of new work from final year students of the BA Contemporary Performance Practice course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Capturing the ethos of the CPP course, which takes as its basis the artist Joseph Beuys’ claim that ‘civilisation is an art work and everybody is an artist’ by encouraging a socially engaged practice, Into The New 2014 offers three days of work designed to intrigue, challenge, entertain, excite and provoke, created by a group of artists trying to make sense of the complexities of our world by making performance to share with others. Tackling subjects such as masculinity, depression and environmentalism, the work at this year’s festival asks us to consider – what makes us human? What connects us? What divides us? Most of all, it asks us to imagine what a better world might look like, and how we can all use our imagination to find creative solutions to the crises our planet faces.

If we are all ‘artists’, we are all part of finding those solutions – please come down, enjoy the work, and join the artists in the bar afterwards to discuss all this and more…
