The much anticipated launch of Lisa Gallacher‘s bespoke garment collection ‘TRDM:Dumfries.
The World Premiere of Suzanne Parry John’s song-cycle ‘Tidemarks’
Lisa Gallacher has been working for 4 months with a group of 10 voluntees from the community of Dumfries – members of the group range in age from 15 to 86 years old. The work started with conversations about each persons individual relationship to the town and this then grew into an idea for a 10 bespoke garments. Lisa has designed and printed the fabrics, then designed and made all of the work herself. At tonight‘s event she will give an illustrated talk about the project and her group will be in attendance wearing the garments they have created together.
Suzanne Parry John is a young contemporary composer based in Edinburgh. Commissioned by The Stove to produce an original piece of music for Inbetween:Dumfries, Suzy turned to the River Nith as a starting point and happened upon the poems of Hugh McMillan. She made contact with the poet and the pair have worked together on this original song-cycle inspired by the Nith and called Tidemarks.
