Description

Unflinching, spellbinding gig theatre devised by award-winning theatre maker Liam Hurley and songwriter Jo Mango, also featuring Louis Abbott (Admiral Fallow), Raveloe and Solareye. Every year in Scotland, thousands of people return home from prison to an uncertain future. A Giant on the Bridge reveals the hidden heartbeat within one such story. Identity, family, community, restoration and injustice are explored through original songwriting, hip-hop and immersive storytelling by five of Scotland’s leading musicians. Developed with the Distant Voices Community – people from across the criminal justice system. Part of MadeInScotlandShowcase.com.
