Library play

An interesting article appeared in the Sunday Herald (Dangerous’ directors scoop Arches prize’, 26/10/08) about a Scottish artist awarded funding to write a play called ‘The Library’.  Sacha Kyle will be creating an interactive library, with people instead of books lining the walls: “I’m fascinated by the idea of how libraries can be a place for refuge, knowledge and a place for escape,” she said. The, as yet unscripted, play is seen by the artistic director of the Glasgow arts venue The Arches as a “dangerous and brave” project.

It’ll be interesting to see how the play turns out and how the artist’s perception matches practitioner’s experiences!
