Echoes from the Engine Shed
“A powerful collaboration between science, music and theatre” The Edinburgh Festival List
Book now to experience the five-star show Echoes as it comes to Stirling for the first ever music theatre performance held in The Engine Shed.
Created by award-winning theatre company Electric Voice Theatre, Echoes features renowned Scottish contemporary musician Frances M Lynch and Margaret Cameron of the BBC Singers, and tells the stories of forgotten Scottish superwomen of science through the mediums of song, performance and spoken word.
The show will be specifically tailored for The Engine Shed audiences, with some of the characters and music featured in the performance drawn from local history. This includes marine biologist Nora Miller who took some remarkable underwater photographs when she was diving for specimens near Bermuda in the 1930s, and Stirling musician Shena Fraser, who composed extensively for children and adults.
Echoes from the Engine Shed is for anyone with a love of theatre, classical or contemporary music and science. This performance marks the first part of a national tour and this is the only chance to see the show in Stirling.
