MSL is working with famed Scottish company, Mischief La-Bas, and Hastings based, Radiator Arts, to produce Nursery Crymes for Glasgow in late 2017 and in Hastings in early 2018.  

Traditional British nursery rhymes (and those from all over the world) often contain nostalgic and beguiling imagery, but they can also have dark and scary themes. They frequently deal in child abuse, religious bigotry, racism, torture, plague, war and prostitution, and are not always intended for children. The basic concept of the show has emerged out of these contrasts.

The show will be site-sensitive and take the form of a promenade, as in an exhibition or fairground, with audiences timed to enter the space at intervals and be led through the event by performers in role. 

Nursery Crymes will be a cautionary, provocative and immersive show for adults, at once performance and conceptual art.

Here are some images of the walk-through, a participatory installation. Enabled by grants from Arts Council England, Hastings Borough Council and Creative Scotland, development work has begun....

We can't divulge any more at this stage while the forces of good and evil take shape but watch this space for further updates. And don't look behind you.........
