May 2013 News
30th April 2013
As we welcome Spring into the Out of the Blue Drill Hall, it’s the last chance to see Place (until 3rd May) a very impressive selection of work from Edinburgh Napier’s Photography degree students. The main drill hall space will then rapidly transform into a mountain of clothing for the Vintage Kilo Sale‘s NEW weekend format. (4th and 5th May)
Divided we Fall? (11th and 12th May) is a timely reminder that communities such as Leith find ways to develop interconnections and build solidarity. Using a NEW piece of Forum Theatre devised by Active Inquiry, the audience will be encouraged to be part of the action onstage and beyond! Divided we Fall also features an exhibition of work from local groups, a special Bruncheon musical treat, and delicious food from The Drill Hall Arts Café and World Kitchen.
A couple of other brand NEW initiatives are starting in May. Open Grip (26th) is an experimental platform for aerial pieces. Performers will be a mixture of levels from beginners to professionals. Another NEW event is Heavenly Blue Notes (25th) – an exciting live music night on the last Saturday of the month showing off the most harmonic and creative music. Three performers, three hours, under the evening sky and the drill hall’s glass roof.
Out of the Blue’s sister venue is the Bongo Club. Clubs and arts spaces come and go but the Bongo Club has been built through collective love, sweat, tears and imagination for the people of Edinburgh (and beyond!) to experience all year round.
The Bongo Club is developing a flourishing programme of clubs, music, arts events, rehearsals, workshops and classes in a NEW and exciting underground space in the heart of the city. The Bongo Lives! festival showcase will run from Wednesday 1st May until Monday 6th -and launch a NEW era.
