Back in March Neil wrote a live review of The Dead Stations at The Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh. The show marked the end of its first Scottish tour. He summed it up nicely in his opening para:
By combining spoken drama, music from Mike Vass, and animation from Nica Harrison & Atikah Zailani; writer Charlotte Hathaway has conceived a performance that compels on a number of different fronts, each one of them mesmerising. Read the full review here.
The great news is that it’s back. The Dead Stations will be performed at Edinburgh’s Hidden Door Festival at the end of May.
Hidden Door is a volunteer-run multi-arts festival dedicated to opening up disused spaces in Edinburgh, making them available to artists and emerging creative talent for new ideas and groundbreaking projects. Unroofed Records shared this about the forthcoming show:
This year, from 27th May- 4th June 2016 Hidden Door will return to the amazing disused street lighting depot behind King’s Stables Road in Edinburgh for an event called ‘Hidden Door Electric City’. It will transform it, for one last time, into an area where the public can explore and discover live music venues, theatre spaces, bars, a cinema, and a multitude of art exhibition, installation spaces and some of Scotland’s best emerging creative talent.
Our show will feature the full Dead Stations album (we performed a stripped-down version for the live shows) with accompanying animated visuals from Nica Harrison and Atikah Zailani. There’ll also be a guest appearance of the music video animated by Gavin C Robinson.
Our piece is being shown in the cinema space at King’s Stables Road on the evening of Monday 30th May, exact time to be confirmed. See the website for further details.
