Come down to our space at 13 Ross St – for an outdoor* participatory performance with Elina Bry.

“We will survive together“ is a performance working towards body empowerment and the art of letting go, shamelessly. Inspired by Jazzercise routines, nights out and Karaoke gone wrong, this performance will transport you to the VHS era. Think of the kid in you who would create a routine to perform for the adults before dinner. Are you the kid or the adult, either way the performer and the audience becomes one. The routines will get you through the day, and inspire you to embrace your inner Jane Fonda from outer space or on a green field back in ’98. Located close to the Barrowlands but not far from the green-field the collective experience will bring us together, everyone’s equally a winner and a loser. Get your best running shoes out, we are – shameless together!

Elina Bry is a French/Finnish, Glasgow based multidisciplinary artist. They work across video, storytelling and live performance, and is interested at listening to and re-staging the malfunctions of the human body. They are curious about the body as a sentient arena; as a responsive tool and as a protagonist of an everyday drama. By that, they investigate the known, model it and work in collaboration with the instability of their body. It is essential that they don’t cause any harm as they want to challenge their body with the everyday, in order to give a stage and witness what is already there.

* In the case of heavy rain the performance will take place inside Market Gallery.


The performance will be BSL interpreted. We have travel and childcare bursaries available. Seats will be provided. Please get in touch on market@marketgallery.org to request a bursary or if you have any more questions regarding access.
