4 Day Weekend Underground


4 Day Weekend Underground is an adventure ‘road movie’ set 20 years in the future on the west coast of Scotland. Artist Florrie James and writer Sam Bellacosa use improvisation to create a narrative represented by a loose, chaotic and undesigned image.

Runner, a fearless young traveller, moves illegally across bureaucratic land divisions, evading surveillance and detection. He makes curious new acquaintances, and is helped by underground activists. Made in collaboration with actor Roman Ibragimov and artist Martin Steuck.

Supported by Glasgow International, Creative Scotland, Hope Scott Trust, Cove Park and The Bridge Awards.

Free; booking required. Book via Eventbrite.

Sat 5 May – Sun 6 May
