OVER / AT and ATLAS Arts present: A/am/ams (come ashore; turn over)

Repertoire A/am/ams (come ashore; turn over), by Rufus Isabel Elliot

In conversation since May 2020, ATLAS and OVER /​AT have variously been exploring ways of bringing to life more hopeful futures through art and music making, workshop sessions and community building projects. With OVER /​AT’s work embedded in trans and non-binary music-making futures, and ATLAS exploring the building of ​‘Plural Futures’ in different parts of their programme, this gentle collaboration is born out of an interest in making, hosting and performing art otherwise – listening to the place where we are and reflecting on the rules and languages which surround us.

A/​am/​ams takes shape as a performance, and a series of workshops and stories, inviting you to tune into voices and instruments from across the project in different ways.

This includes a new audio piece shared via online from 10 September, an interview with Josie Vallely from 22nd September, a Zoom-game of The Quiet Year (LGBT+ only) on 22 September, and a release of collectively printed visual scores from 27 September.

It also features a new text by Rufus Isabel Elliot, which imagines a new mouthful-of-sand future-language of the North West Highlands, spanning Older Scots and Middle English, presented alongside a new, specially commissioned Gaelic interpretation of the text, by Cass Ezeji shared on 17 September.
