About this Event

Glasgow International have partnered with David Roberts Art Foundation (DRAF) to present a performance programme to launch the festival. The event draws on a shared history of developing and staging dynamic performance work and incorporates work by internationally recognised artists responding to the festival’s theme of Attention.

Taking place across spaces at SWG3, the programme includes Paul Maheke, who is showing a new performance commissioned by The Renaissance Society in Chicago, Lina Lapelytė, fresh from winning the 2019 Venice Biennale Golden Lion (with collaborators Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė and Vaiva Grainytė), and Nina Beier who is presenting an extract of a major new performance commission taking place at MO.CO. in Montpellier in April. Each artist is engaging with different registers of attention throughout the evening, whether through the flickering presence of dancers, plays on folk, pop and opera, or the sonic intimacy of club nights. The presentation at GI marks the beginning of a new phase in DRAF’s work, collaborating across the UK with institutional partners to share their work more broadly and to wider audiences.

Supported by Institut français du Royaume-Uni, Justė Kostikovaitė at Lithuanian Culture Institute and Lithuanian Embassy in the United Kingdom and Theodore Gin

As part of the Gi2020 opening events at SWG3, Civic Room present Hubris, a programme of performances with artists Christian Noelle Charles, Liv Fontaine, William Joys and Wassili Widmer.
