This July, Motionhouse presents: Fragile, a breathtaking demonstration of strength and agility will be performed in Glasgow’s Merchant City. That’s dancing JCB’s, people!

As part of the 2015 Merchant City Festival, Motionhouse: Fragile will be performed in Candleriggs Square in Glasgow’s Merchant City.

Fragile sees professional and emergent performers and JCB diggers working together in a breath-taking demonstration of strength and agility.

Dancers and construction machinery interact in a poignant celebration of the relationship between movement and emotion.

Moments of beautiful interaction between humans and machines are designed to be understood through the senses. It is a visceral, exciting experience which moves the audience through risk, daring, beauty and the unexpected.

The world premiere of Fragile by Motionhouse is co-commissioned by Conflux, Merchant City Festival and Gulbenkian, University of Kent, with support from Creative Scotland, Glasgow City Council, Arts Council England and sponsored by Scot JCB and AB 2000.

There are two performances each day, at 2pm and 4.30pm.
