Between here and there are miles upon miles of land and water, huge cities and small towns, boats carrying things from one place to another, bridges connecting two pieces of land and millions and millions of people.
There are forests and different species, languages, cultures, roads and train tracks. There are politics and parties and picnics and there is a lot of grass.
There are conflicts and disagreements, countless acts of kindness, there are countries and histories and stories that are being passed down generations.
Between here and there are similarities and differences that bring us closer and push us further apart, there are people and places and there is me and there is you.
1,210km is an explosive new show by young people from Glasgow and Berlin that inspires, questions and provokes. Award-winning young performance companies from Berlin and Glasgow explore ideas of cross-cultural identity, connection and belonging as they ask the question: ‘what is the space between us?’
This show has been created by young participants from Berlin’s Theater an der Parkaue and Glasgow’s Junction 25, through a creative and cultural exchange over a number of months, and through digital technology.
Tramway was delighted to host the premiere of 1,210km on the 10th & 11th August as part of Festival 2018, the cultural programme for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships. It is without doubt one of the most daring collaborations taking place between the two cities as a result of Festival 2018. 1,210km went on tour to Theater an der Parkaue in Berlin, October 2018. Performances and Q&A were held on 15 and 16 October at Theatre an der Parkaue, STAGE 2.
