Little Amal meets a Big Storm
Date: 10 Nov 2021
Local Start Time: 13:30-14:30
Location: Stag Street off Govan Road
Country: United Kingdom
Little Amal and the sea goddess Storm meet to share a story of people and planet.
Near the old Govan Graving Docks, Amal will meet ‘Storm’ – a 10 metre puppet made entirely out of recycled and natural materials. Together they will gaze at the words NO NEW WORLDS floating on the river, then set out on a journey of discovery, inspiration and hope.
STORM and Amal will travel through Govan to the former site of ‘Moot Hill’ on Water Row where debate, democracy and kings of the ancient kingdom of Strathclyde gave birth to a long history and activism, where historic giants like Mary Barbour and Isabella Elder were champions of social justice. They’ll be greeted by rhymes, rhythm and music from local rap artists.
The community response in Govan has been made possible by two present day women activists and key cultural players: Helen Kyle, Stage Scotland and Liz Gardiner, Fablevision.
The NO NEW WORLDS installation comes to Govan courtesy of Clyde Docks Preservation Initiative and artists collaborative, Still Moving.
Little Amal has been hosted by National Theatre of Scotland, Citizens Theatre and Perth Theatre.
Storm is a Vision Mechanics production.
