Grit

Music

The Martyn Bennett story is a visually spectacular theatrical exploration of one of Scotland's most innovative musical visionaries, Martyn Bennett.

Bennett took the underground music scene by storm in the 90s with his unique blend of Gaelic and world song with cutting edge dance music.

Directed by Olivier Award winning theatre director Cora Bissett and written by one of Scotland's brightest writing talents Kieran Hurley; GRIT will take the audience through Martyn’s incredible creative journey and his fight against cancer, which ultimately robbed him of his life at just 33.

To reflect the explosive, high octane yet delicate layers within his music, world-class trapeze artists and stunning choreographed dance moves from Montreal- based choreographer Dana Gingras will come together to create a visual extravaganza, set against the backdrop of Martyn's legendary dance music in its original form.

The production will showcase at two locations:

• Glasgow’s Tramway from 3-7 June (with previews on 30/31 May)

• Druimfin, Mull from 20-22 June

A mini music festival comprising of artists inspired by his work will also take place on Mull from 19-22 June, featuring amongst others, brilliant folk visionaries LAU.
