There are three performances of Chronicles at National Museum of Scotland today at the museum on Chambers Street.
What is it? It is an interactive walking tour of the museum with young people from Scottish dance collective Project X (UK) and Thulani Rachia (UK/South Africa)
You will wear headphones and listen to a soundtrack with music and narrative while the actors before you guide you to convene in certain areas of the museum or walk on to others.
Those taking part are denoted by the headphones, which made other visitors to the museum regard us with some degree of curiosity!
Working with young people from Edinburgh, the two groups have created a new piece of dance theatre performance together.

This alternative audio guide and immersive performance uncovers hidden and reimagined histories as the audience promenade through the Scottish Galleries of the National Museum of Scotland.

Chronicles is part of National Theatre of Scotland’s Futureproof festival marking Scotland’s Year of Young People in 2018.

A major radical new festival of international performing arts, created by young people working alongside renowned Scottish, British and international theatre practitioners.

Ten companies and artists specialising in daring new work will embed themselves in ten communities around the country, working with local groups of young people to co-create, design, develop and stage a piece of performance.

Ten productions will then take place in cities and locations across Scotland as part of the Futureproof festival in autumn 2018.
