White Gold



Who do you wish you told you loved? Which song means the most to you and why? What door should you never have opened?

The people of Inverclyde have been sharing some fascinating untold stories for White Gold – an ambitious, site-specific performance taking place at Greenock’s iconic Sugar Sheds from 4–7 June 2014.

A cast of 200 volunteers will join a team of professional artists and performers to turn these stories from raw material to white gold – and audiences aren’t expected to just sit back and watch! You will walk through the actual show, surrounded with drama, movement, music and breathtaking aerial performances.

White Gold is an original creation conceived and overseen by Mark Murphy, and directed by Simone Jenkinson and Joseph Traynor of Cuerda Producciones, Argentina. Part of the Glasgow 2014 Cultural Programme, this spectacular four-night event has been produced by arts organisation Iron Oxide, with All or Nothing Aerial Dance Theatre, Tigerstyle and the Beacon Arts Centre.

“Our vision is to create a show that has the power to transform” explain the creative team behind White Gold. “To find the extraordinary in the everyday, to confound expectation of what a group of people with a united intention can achieve and in doing so, get to the heart of what makes these incredible communities of Inverclyde tick.”

Tickets for White Gold are on sale now and can be booked by phoning 01475 723 723 or by visiting the Beacon Arts Centre website.
