St Luke's and the Winged Ox / 24 May 2018 07:30 pm


You have been signed up to a game you never wanted to play.
Your family member is in prison, only you can pass go.
Roll the dice; one step forward, two spaces back.
Be ready for anything.
Uncover the rules and some day you may win.

CON(SCRIPTED) is an interactive performance encompassing poetry, soundscape, installation and sensory overload. CON(SCRIPTED) is devised and performed by the arts collective KIN. KIN envisions a future where those affected by family imprisonment are not defined by their experience but use it as a foundation for positive change.

KIN have worked with renowned spoken word artist and poet Leyla Josephine, visual artist Alice Dansey-Wright and sound designer Ben Fletcher to bring this unique piece to life.

The effects of family imprisonment are felt widely, not just by young people. CON(SCRIPTED) will be a chance to continue the conversation that began at Breaking Ground in Jan 2017, where KIN brought a diverse group of people come together to talk about the impact of family imprisonment in Scotland.

This event, taking place at St Luke’s, will mark the first day ‘Vox Liminis Presents’,  a two day mini festival as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival.
