Glasgow's Hidden Geometry: a night of psychogeographical exploration.
Little Bit of Theatre presents.
GLASGOW'S HIDDEN GEOMETRY:  A Night of Psychogeographical Exploration

The Devil's Plantation/The Psychogeographical Commission/Caroline McKenzie

With an Introduction to Psychogeography from Dr David Manderson.

The Devil's Plantation
A feature film based on May Miles Thomas' BAFTA-winning website, The Devil's Plantation promises an unforgettable journey into the hidden corners of Glasgow. It tells the true story of amateur archaeologist Harry Bell whose self-published book Glasgow's Secret Geometry describes his obsessive search for a secret network of aligned sites traversing the city. The original work changed course after the discovery of an abandoned casefile belonging to ex-psychiatric patient Mary Ross whose long walks in the city mirrored those of Bell. Narrated by Kate Dickie and Gary Lewis, the film lovingly captures the spirit of the dérive (unplanned journey or drift) and like any good excursion arrives at a satisfying and surprising conclusion.

The Psychogeographical Commission
The Psychogeographical Commission are well known for high-concept recordings based around London ('Genius Loci'), the psychological effect of the second half of a year ('Patient Zero') and the Occult origins of the Glasgow Subway System ('Widdershins').  For this appearance they will be soundtracking a film based around two journeys through Maryhill, intertwining the past with what they found whilst walking.

Caroline McKenzie
Caroline has lived close to the River Clyde for just over a decade. In that time, she has crossed its bridges many, many times and 2 new ones have been built. For her set, she will be considering these bridges and the halfway point they represent; they are inherently transitional and yet we cross them without a thought

David Manderson
"David's remarkable debut novel, Lost Bodies (Kennedy & Boyd) has a rare quality which takes it into two camps that critics usually keep apart, it's both a literary novel and a compelling page turner and well worth adding to your reading pile if, like me, you're beginning to turn away from genre-defined fiction and looking at new ways of telling stories.In the Guardian Review last August in the pre-publicity surrounding Umbrella, Will Self generated a good debate about 'the failure of modernist fiction' and wrote about his anxiety in finding the right form. He ought to add Lost Bodies to his TBR pile."
