Engineering:
‘the action of working artfully to bring something about’

wish us luck.

The Doing Group try to create new realities. What inspiration can we take from the history of engineering for our own dreaming, what can we lend? If we take something apart will we understand it better, can we build anything new? As theatre makers we build spaces, move bodies, create possibilities and ideas. Do we see the same futures? Can we try to imagine together?

In the summer of 2017, Glasgow Science Festival brought together theatre-makers ‘The Doing Group’ and a group of Glasgow-based engineers, culminating in a performance at the James Arnott Theatre on September 29 2017.

Following the performance there was a Q&A session, hosted by Dr Zara Gladman and featuring engineers from University of Glasgow and University of Strathclyde.

With special thanks to Cairan McLaggan, Tony Sweeten, Zara Gladman, Kevin Worrall, Tom Deas, Carl Lavery and Minty Donald.

Supported by University of Glasgow, Glasgow Science Festival, and the Royal Academy of Engineering.
