Event description

Description

TURN is a performance event created specially for the Govan Graving Docks. Across three significant evenings in the September lunar calendar, a composition for bells and voice ring will out from inside the Docks as the low tide turns.

Bringing together radio-broadcast speech, a bespoke choir and a series of hand-cast bells made in and with the people of Govan, TURN will be a unique performance of people, place and acoustic instrumentation.

The TURN project draws a number of ‘circles’ in its creation. It pays attention to the macro-cycles of moon and tide, and the project itself is structured around and consciously integrated into these systems. Within this we draw geographical circles in and around Govan, with the creation of hand bells and ringing of church bells, as well as presenting the stories of local life cycles and change, through the voices of women celebrating their birthdays.
