is a visionary new multi-media performance event from Stewart Laing and long-term collaborator Pamela Carter tackling the nebulous nature of identity in a changing world. In a performance propelled by music, television, film, and dynamic theatre-making, expectations will be subverted from beginning to end. Them!
brings the audience onto the set of a live TV chat show. The lights are up, cameras are rolling, the host meets their guest, and the house band perform. A celebrated Scottish theatre-maker appears on the couch promoting his new Glasgow-set remake of Them!, the seminal 1950s creature-feature. But everything begins to change, and as the scene shifts from the TV studio to a crowded club night at the end of the world, the audience see race, class, and cultural identity come to the fore. A diverse cast of performers will take to the chat show stage in the roles of host and interviewees. Each of the performer's unique characteristics contribute to a compelling narrative about the nature of identity and what makes us who we are.Author Pamela Carter.
