Nests

Nests is a fairy-tale for Scotland’s Year of Young People that questions how our society treats the young and vulnerable, catch it at Macrobert Arts Centre on 21st September!

Nests

About Nests

A boy on the run. A listening crow. A man who wants to be lost. The story of two people struggling; a boy and a man, told through poetry and stark reality in text, film and soundscape. As our world becomes more disparate and broken, it questions if our children and young people are being systematically and ideologically let down by society.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Nests are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
