The Shelter is a multidisciplinary piece about real life on the streets of Aberdeen which combines live drawing and verbatim theatre. Sound and sight give different perspectives on the city’s bus shelters through a gradual accumulation of brush strokes and repeated snippets of ever-growing conversations. Watch a beautiful work of art evolve in Japanese ink at the hands of multi-award-winning artist Kate Steenhauer, alongside a vibrant verbatim text which flits between light and dark in a jazz‐like manner performed by writer Shane Strachan. Originally developed with the support of the National Theatre of Scotland, Freshly Squeezed Productions is pleased to support Kate and Shane and present this work in progress sharing of The Shelter.
