‘Shed’ – Northern Rascals @ Melrose Corn Exchange


Presented by Live Borders Arts & Creativity as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival 2024. 

Wednesday 9 October / Melrose Corn Exchange / Tickets Here.

SHED is Northern Rascals’ brand-new project that uses visual art, spoken word and performance to raise awareness of the issues young people face with their mental health. The work uses performance to narrate the struggles of our young people, & an installation to display the stories of support young people have received from their families & communities, & the help that is available.

Performed by a small cast of dancers in a pop-up structure, SHED invites its audience to stand on the outside and look in. A chance to witness real-life experiences told in a series of shorts, the audience get a glimpse of the stories that make us – a portrait of love and loss and the essential humanity that resides in us all.

It’s beyond words. I could feel the characters and their woes, the writing is beautiful, even dreamlike – you will get lost in it” – Sharing Participant
