Tonight is the opening night of the fantastic show Norman, which is at Macrobert Arts Centre in Stirling from 3rd-5th of March.  Here is a great little blurb about the show:

Welcome to a fusion of dance, theatre and cinema, in which a dancer physically interacts with the cinematic universe of Canadian filmmaker Norman McLaren. The creations of McLaren have never come alive quite as they do in NORMAN, the newest mixmedia production from the co-artistic directors of 4D art, Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon. Via the magic of their virtual projection technology, 4D art invites the audience into McLaren’s universe. Rooted in the physical presence of performer and choreographer Peter Trosztmer, this one-man show, produced by 4D art in collaboration with the National Film Board of Canada, becomes much more than simply an “homage” to Norman McLaren. It is a revelation of the creative mind. By means of interviews, of explorations of visuals and music, and also of live performance interacting with film, NORMAN reveals the power, modernity and humanism of this creative genius.


This show is honestly one of the most technically amazing live performances I have ever seen. The techniques are so fantastic that our technicians have been sworn to secrecy and have had to sign a disclaimer saying they will not give away the magic of the show.

If you are a student you can get a ticket for £5, if aged 12-17 it is only £2 so why not come along and watch a show unlike anything you have ever seen before.

    I went to see this last night and it was amazing! I didn’t really know what to expect as the descriptions of 4D art are a bit hard to imagine. It was such a wonderful performance – the blend of live dance, original films, hologram-like film footage and music was breathtaking. I’d recommend that anyone go and see it, even if you’re not sure what to expect, in fact especially if you’re not sure what to expect as you’ll be even more blown away!

      Glad you enjoyed it so much! Breathtaking is a great word, I had no idea what to expect when I saw it 2 years ago and It left such an impression on me.
