Our Atmosphere programme rocked the Edinburgh International Film Festival, and as promised, we're back. During our JP & me season we'll be presenting three more expanded film screenings to further explore our research. First up is 'Rollercoaster', directed by James Goldstone.

Starring George Segal and Timothy Bottoms, this suspense thriller was one of only four movies to be made in Sensurround. A tale of blackmail across America's amusement parks as a curiously composed young man unleashes chaos and mayhem with a icy cool hand.

Doing the Gooey 2.0

Doing the Gooey 2.0

09|10 Alt-w Production Award - gooeyTEAM

Thursday 7th October 2010, 8pm. £5
CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3JD

An ongoing experimental performance project that takes the daily use of all kinds of GUIs (graphical user interface) as its point of departure. gooeyTEAM transfers all these flattened movements, communicative techniques and screen-based commands into a physical reality using simple materials and theatrical elements.

Following a series of workshops, a group of live networkers and programmers will create a massive human GOOEY for Cryptic Nights. The performers will answer the following: How do you act the role of a cursor? How should we move like a Gooey tells us, only in real life? ...or in other words - how can we all DO the Gooey?

A heart rending musical score composed and performed by Mark Growden accompanies this disturbing and wondrous adventure. Presented by curator Bren O’Callaghan.
