Alma Mater returns to Scotland Street School
Sep 2014 30

We’re very pleased to announce that our original pioneering iPad tour, Alma Mater, is returning to its home at Scotland Street School Museum. This unique experience created in homage to Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s masterpiece will be free to visitors and available throughout October as part of the Creative Mackintosh festival.

More about Alma Mater here.

The piece was originally a commission as part of the cultural programme of the IETM plenary session that saw 600 international theatre delegates come to Glasgow in 2010. It was created and conceived by Eilidh MacAskill and Robert Walton (who directed it) in collaboration with cinematographer Anna Chaney and composer John De Simone with his Ensemble Thing. The film which leads you through the building sees performances from a range of Glasgow-based artists as well as family and friends who all gave up their time to make the piece possible and we are very grateful to them.

If you didn’t see it first time around or you’d like another look at it, head on down to Scotland Street School Museum from the 1st of October during their opening hours. It’s totally free to experience and you don’t need to bring your own iPad.
