“I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the streets at dawn looking for an angry fix” Allen Ginsberg, HOWL, 1955
HOWL(ing) is an epic poem for post referendum Scotland
Using beat poet Allen Ginsberg’s seminal piece “HOWL” as a basis…
We present a concert of words and music,
We present a concert of Yes and No
We present a concert of a changed national financial, mental and social health
We present a celebration of where we find ourselves now, and how,
…We feel about that
Written and directed by performance poet/theatre director Drew Taylor, performed by leading Scottish acting talent and accompanied by acclaimed Glasgow musicians Julia and the Doogans:HOWL(ing) is a performance constructed by old, responding to the new, reflecting the current view.
HOWL(ing) is supported by Glasgay! and the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival.
