“As vividly written as it is beautifully recorded… It is a love story well worth crossing Europe for” Mark Fisher (Guardian)
 ‘…Richly atmospheric aural and installation drama…with a tenderness and insight that shifts the heart.’ Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman ****
‘Make the journey if you can..’ Herald ****
 
Jennifer Robson collaborated with Poorboy in response to Blood and Roses, written by Sandy thomson the comapan director. Over 20 pieces of original art and one-off works were constructed and displayed in various venues throughout the Merchant city in Glasgow. Originally showcased for the International Network for Contemporary Arts in 2010, Blood and Roses was chosen from hundreds of other performances to feature as part of the event performing to sold-out audiences, both based and supported by the Tron Theatre, Glasgow. Works included original drawings and paintings along with a lifesize wedding dress sculpture.  Blood and Roses was then selected to feature in the international Made in Scotland Showcase, where the previous production was adapted and transformed into paper based artworks including a 6ft wedding paper dress, large scale posters pasted to a courtyard wall of the artists work and intricate collages created and inspired in response to the tale.
 

The Play

 

Witchcraft, fairytales and a modern-day love story are drawn together in “Blood and Roses”: an audio play that tells a tale of loyalty, sacrifice and love spanning 400 years. Using the hidden beauty of the City’s dark corners, Poorboy takes its audience on a journey that unravels family mysteries from war-torn Russia to modern-day Scotland.

Poorboy’s metier is to transform ordinary, sometimes forgotten spaces and stories into intimate and epic tales that linger in the soul. Winning huge critical and audience acclaim, Poorboy have once again mixed fact with fiction and fairytale in their daring and innovative trademark style. Each audience member is guided by a personal mp3 player through places and spaces that help to tell the storyof ‘Blood and Roses’ filled with wedding bells, hurricanes and iron teeth…

 

 
‘Beautifully life-affirming…an exquisite piece of writing.’ OnStageScotland
‘Since those we love are only with us for a short time, then we should cherish them in the moment. This is as true of our artists as it is of our kith and kin.’ Mary Brennan
