Echoes from Inverclyde - celebrating the histories of Scotland’s forgotten female scientists

8th March 2019

Echoes art work

Echoes is a multi-disciplinary production which celebrates the histories of Scotland’s forgotten female scientists, through the medium of song, music, performance and spoken word.

The show features collaborations between professional musicians, including Scottish composer and singer Frances M Lynch, alongside performers, community musicians and school children from the surrounding areas.

Every performance is different; the performers collaborate with people from the community of each tour location, drawing inspiration from the nature and history of the unique local environment to use in the show.

Audiences can expect to see theatrical and musical performances telling the stories of the unsung female heroes of Scottish science. The show is both hugely entertaining and educational, and aims to inspire younger audience members to get involved in science and the arts.

This performance of Echoes from Inverclyde by Electric Voice Theatre has been specially created in collaboration with Inverclyde Singers and All Saints Primary School.

The Scottish “Superwomen” featured include Greenock’s own Agnes Borthwick, a WW1 engineer at Georgetown munitions factory, and a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Women’s Engineering Society.

7:00 pm at the Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock.
