starry nightYou are invited to an evening of participatory entertainment. Come join Surrealist practitioner and poet, Mary Jacob (Rrose Sélavy) to play Surrealist parlour games in the beautiful and unique environment of the Gas Gallery.

Each session features a different combination of activities involving collective and joyous improvisation, based on parlour games that the Surrealists played and classic theatre warm-up exercises. We use movement and sound, words and pictures to bring all the senses into play.

No experience is needed, just bring your sense of fun.

Live music will be performed for some of the games, and you are welcome to bring along an instrument if you would like to join in a jam.

Do you have an idea for a game or activity? Please let me know at the start of the session and we will see if it is possible to add your activity to the programme.

Some artifacts from the November Surrealist games evening

We had three main activities on 22 November:

  1. Collage – see gallery below
  2. Painting sounds with light
  3. Illot Mollo stories: excerpts, story1 by Ali LochheadStory 2

I didn’t get any pictures of painting sound one, unfortunately, because I was playing the game myself but here are some of the things we made for the other two games.
