Take a Journey to the Inner ‘East’

Journey to the East

27 Aug 2021 – 29 Aug 2021

The inaugural Journey to the East Festival 2021 is a live event bringing together a line-up of top contemporary performance and dance performers over an August weekend at Tramway and CCA Glasgow, among other venues.

Taking its theme from Herman Hesse’s 1932 novel of the same title, the Festival explores the definitions of Eastern/Mysticism, proposing ‘East’ as an internal landscape – the ‘other side’ of human consciousness, social experience and the search for truth. Including some Scottish/UK premieres, artists’ workshops and symposium panel with special guest speakers, the Festival offers the chance to explore new dimensions in live art and contemporary dance.
