Royal Bank of Scotland Event
The Freedom Finale
Mon 27 Aug 20:15 - 21:30
Baillie Gifford Main Theatre
Over the course of the Festival, writers from across the globe have discussed freedom and its complications. This grand Festival finale brings together musicians, writers and artists for an international musical collaboration created by Daniel Krass and featuring novelist and guitarist Luke Sutherland (formerly of Mogwai) and Ghanian-born percussionist Gameli Tordzro, inspired by The Freedom Papers. A musical creation incorporates a selection of Freedom Paper texts including the ‘freedom story’ of Gavin Francis and Esa Aldegheri, who gave up their jobs to tour the world on a motorbike and, as they recount their voyage, Iranian illustrator Ehsan Abdollahi will create live freedom drawings. Celebrate with us and a chorus of characters, stories and sounds in our grand finale.
Part of our Freedom and Equality series of events.
