WHAT’S ON OCTOBER: The Flames at CCA

Following the success of projects including Out of the Dark, a theatre-based Mental Health venture for people over 50, and Unusual Places to Dance, an 18 month project with CACE (Older People, Active Lives) and Cumbernauld Theatre, Tricky Hat Productions are pleased to present a bold and vibrant multi-media performance by The Flames.

Produced by Tricky Hat and founded in 2016 as part of Luminate Festival, The Flames are a Glasgow based Theatre Company exclusively for creative people over 50 who devise work which challenges pre-conceived ideas of how older people think, and what they aspire to. Combining performance with original music and striking audio and visual design, The Flames take inspiration from everyday life, making the extraordinary out of the ordinary.

Having undertaken a series of workshops with Artistic Director for Tricky Hat Productions Fiona Miller, Musician and Composer Mick Slaven, and Digital Artist Kim Beveridge to name a few, they are now preparing for their multi-media performance at the CCA in Glasgow on Wednesday 4 October 2017.

Combining live music, film projections, and devised theatre, The Flames will explore and challenge life after fifty; presenting a fresh look at how we approach ageing. Join us for an astonishing, engaging evening in which The Flames present the culmination of five weeks of explorative, bold, and intimate work.
