Rendition Preview

Invitation To Edinburgh Palette

I would like to invite you to a preview launch of Rendition, a radical new work from Tragic Carpet Visual Theatre Company – Friday 13th September in Edinburgh, 10.30am-12.20pm.

Rendition is a potent and immersive installation which uses detailed, up-to-the-minute academic research findings from The Rendition Project to tell the story of one man’s nightmare experience as the first suspect to be taken into the CIA’s detention programme. Freda O’Byrne, artistic director and sole performer, uses an innovative mix of puppetry, soundscapes and theatre to visualise the human rights violations committed by US and UK governments in the aftermath of 9/11 – and explores the juxtaposition between extreme vulnerability and absolute power. See the trailer here.

In partnership with Freedom From Torture Edinburgh, the preview event will provide the opportunity to visit the installation within the gallery, meet the creative team and view the accompanying immersive performance. Tickets are limited so please register here.

“…a profoundly moving piece of total theatre… beautiful, exquisitely made show driven by a quiet but fierce sense of humanity and compassion”

Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman ★★★★

“At a time when we await the outcome of a Scottish police investigation into the use of Scottish airports for rendition, and after the UK Intelligence and Security Committee published a devastating report into the extent of British involvement in torture, many issues remain unresolved”

Professor Ruth Blakeley, The Rendition Project (It is anticipated that Professor Blakeley will be able to attend the preview and discuss these issues.)

Rendition will tour Scotland in autumn 2020. The performance is ideal for galleries, community spaces, studios and exhibition spaces, and can work in theatres too. Please get in touch for more information.

Mandy Fox 1968 – 2019

Mandy Fox

It is with great sadness that we have to tell you that Mandy Fox passed away this weekend.

Arriving home just after walking her dog on Portobello Beach she suffered a Heart Attack, from which she did not recover.

A marvellous and unique Lady, she will be greatly missed by us all.

There is a ‘Book of Condolence’ in the office on the third floor if you would like share a thought or memory.
