About the event
Created in 2020 for National Theatre of Scotland’s Scenes for Survival.
Black Scots is an extract from First Snow/Premiere Neige performed by Thierry Mabonga.
A young man recalls escaping the horrors of civil war in DR Congo as a child, to seek asylum in Glasgow. He finds surprising parallels between the barbarity and exploitation at the heart of that conflict and the shocking revelations of murder and profiteering painted away beneath the surface of his new homeland’s history.
Directed by Niloo-Far Khan. with an exclusive intro and conversation with lead artists Thierry Mabonga and Niloo-Far Khan
