Edinburgh International Festival


An interactive performance documenting a 23-mile walk from Dungavel Detention Centre to the Home Office in Glasgow.

Amber responds to the different paths people seeking safety might take in their migratory journeys and the difficulty of judging their need for protection based on the way they arrive to UK shores. The performance will be followed by a discussion with the artists and human rights activists.

Paria Goodarzi is from Tehran, Iran and now lives and works in Glasgow. Her work is multi-disciplinary with a background in Contemporary Textile Design and Sculpture & Environmental Art. Francisco Llinas Casas is from Venezuala and now based in Glasgow. His pieces often take the form of immersive installations that feature sound, video and smell; as well as sculptural arrangements, photos, films and prints.

Casas and Goodarzi are co-founders of Distanced Assemblage, an artist-led initiative working in collaboration with diasporic and migrant communities.

The Refuge series is supported by British Council, Edinburgh Futures Institute at the University of Edinburgh and Claire and Mark Urquhart
Made possible through the PLACE programme
