STRUT is designed as a procession of outdoor dance performances partnered with stunning large scale building mapped projections for audiences to encounter from their windows and doorsteps. The rotating one-performer parade weaves through the streets, giving the spectators time to watch several dances, and show their appreciation by cheering, flickering their lights and wave to their neighbours before the procession has moved away. As residents peek out video-mapped projections with upscaled images of our local dancers come to frame the spectators’ windows on both side of the street.
EVOLVE is an 18 month project delivered by RIG Arts in partnership with Williamsburgh Housing Association and Renfrewshire Leisure, with and for residents and community members of Seedhill, Paisley. The project is offering free community get togethers for Seedhill full of creative activities to celebrate local identity and community pride and is open to everyone. They offer biweekly workshops, fun day events with a focus on creativity, community building and skill-sharing.
