Performing Arts Company
Visual Statement work offers the broadest range of performance art work in Greater Easterhouse creating productions for main stage, studio theatre, touring and schools. Visual Statement provides the highest quality of innovative education and participatory work to groups around Glasgow and the Country.
In 2006 Visual Statement undertook a major development and moved into the £9 million new state-of-the-art community leisure, arts and learning campus, ‘the Bridge’ the first of its kind in Scotland situated in the heart of Greater Easterhouse. The new facility consists of four integrated sections: Platform arts centre, a new relocated community library, refurbished swimming pool which together are joined to the recently completed replacement building of John Wheatley College.
The Bridge also facilities the administrative offices of the National Theatre of Scotland. Visual Statement is the resident dance company based at the bridge with its own dedicated office space, costume design rooms, laundry room, scenery and prop making workshops and storage space. In addition there is access to high-tech rehearsal studio, recording studio and theatre. From this base, Visual Statement will continue to encourage active participation by local people in the arts.
