Graham McLaren’s “Dream On!” was a cross institutional collaboration between BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, The Glasgow School of Art, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the University of Glasgow.
Along with dramaturg Amanda Larsson and composer Rory Comerford, I worked closely with the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's BA Performance in British Sign Language and English programme at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
The project culminated in an ambitious, multi-arts experience involving hundreds of emerging performers, artists, designers, and academics. Marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death “Dream On!”, inspired by the themes of "A Midsummer Night's Dream", was a celebration of the Bard's place at the heart of our culture.
The performance event took place at Bute Hall, Glasgow, on April 23rd and was streamed live on the BBC. The performance can be viewed online here.
