Third year students from the Contemporary Performance Practice course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland are the latest to take on the Arches Cafe Bar Takeover challenge.

Over the past two years, the Arches have invited a range of artists to bring their unique vision to the building as part of The Arches Cafe Bar Takeover series. Experimenting with the design, decor and menu to create a unique new space in the cosy restaurant area, the artists also bring unique table top performances to a diverse audience, some of who may not have been otherwise introduced to their work.

The Into The New Takeover performance will take place on:

Wed 13th Feb
Fri 15th Feb
Thurs 21st Feb
Fri 22nd Feb

The audience will enjoy a delicious three course meal (for just £9.95) whilst taking in the performances. The installation then runs until the end of March.

Those who have taken up the challenge so far include Adrian Howells, Johnny McKnight, Fish and Game, Hole in my Pocket, Glasgow Youth Film Festival and Martin O’Connor.
