Merchant City & App
National Theatre - GhostsI am Glasgow.
Built with my blood,
My sweat, my dying.
A young man in 18th Century Glasgow, leads us on atmospheric journey of 500+ years of resistance through the streets of the Merchant City down to the River Clyde.
Download the app, plug in your headphones, and lose yourself in this poetic storytelling experience, exploring the myth of Scotland's collective amnesia of slavery and racialised wealth, of empire and identity.
Surrounded by AR visuals, haunting voices and music, Ghosts will take you on a physical and emotional journey. A lament to lives lost and an impassioned call to action in the present day. Take a socially distanced walk through the heart of modern Glasgow and see an essential vision of the city.
Written and Directed by Adura Onashile.
A National Theatre of Scotland Production
