Right To Be Human
(Thu 26 Oct: 6pm)
The ‘Breadagogues’ (Marie Louise Cochrane, Suzanne Houston and Andrew Whitley) share stories and songs that tear open our daily bread with loaf-changing consequences. It’s an extraordinary tale: of wheat’s journey through history with humans, from wild grass to commodity grain; of refinement, adulteration and redemption in the hands of ordinary folk claiming their right to healthy food. A gently amusing narrative mixes catchy songs that lampoon those who profit from our belly-aches, with invitations to take this vital food into our own hands. Scottish flour, recipes and real bread will be available during a post-show discussion.
This event is going to be audio-described by Caroline Jaquet. Please make yourself known to box office staff on arrival if you would like to use this, or by emailing email@example.com in advance.
On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, creatives within and beyond the storytelling community celebrate and explore aspects of our common humanity. The Right To Be Human series includes new shows specially commissioned for this year’s Festival.
Join us as we explore, question and celebrate the Right To Be Human. This year, on the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we consider the many challenges we face, from human health and wellbeing to the health and future of our planet. However, there is also a worldwide movement to meet these challenges, and to exist imaginatively, fairly and in community with the whole diversity of life. Storytelling has embraced these values from the dawn of culture and stories today can help us be more connected to the world around us, as well as our rights, showing us how to be more alive and creative as humans.
