Fault Lines

Our "riotous ritual" (The Stage) was out and about in Spring'22 visiting nine venues across Scotland and England. Huge thanks to the amazing show team and all the venue partners who supported the work. And the biggest thanks to all you incredible audiences who came to see the work. Below are just some of the things you said

"Loved it - moving, celebratory, and each piece of sound seemed to fit no matter what you listened to"

"I thought it was AMAZING! very layered and multi faceted. I want to see the show more times to listen to all the tracks and find out more"

"Absolutely loved Fault Lines from @2destlang last night - one of the most ingenious and joyful shows I’ve seen in yonks. Five flip-betweenable audio channels, a catwalk, and some very clever, brain bending choreography "

"Super different! I felt open, warm, empowered, confronted, challenged, educated and all the goodies that art invites us to experience"

"ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! I could watch it a million times over. I had no idea what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. The music was great and I loved the multiple messages throughout. AND THE DJ's T-SHIRTS!"

"ALL the feelings. Gut wrenching + laugh out loud which turns in an instant ....themes of power, control but in ways I have never seen on stage before."

2022

The year began with a new publication, FIELD notes TWO by the participants on our most recent FIELD residency.

We took Fault Lines on tour in April and May, visiting venues across Scotland and England, with more planned for later in the summer.

Then, our Of Time and Place project, working with rural people to create a national portrait from their experiences, takes us to places across the country.

In development is a new dance solo 40/40 led by Katherina Radeva in collaboration with a cohort of incredible female dance makers all over the age of forty - watch this space in early 2023 for more.

We are Two Destination Language...

Two Destination Language is led by Katherina Radeva and Alister Lownie. We make bold award-winning performance work which explores ideas of identity, belonging and boundaries. Our work tours in the UK and internationally. It can be seen on theatre stages, in village halls, in libraries, in galleries, in parks, along roads, in abandoned shops. We also create exhibitions, installations and print publications.

We work with other brilliant and often award winning creatives and artists to create experiences which are touching, thought provoking, intellectually stimulating and very visually arresting.

Our projects working with non-professional members of the community have been transformative for those involved and for the places they live, shared with public audiences like any of our other work.

Our curatorial projects take shape in festivals we produce and conversations we undertake. Listening is a key method in our process and inclusion underpins everything we do!

Two Destination Language is an Associate Artist at ARC Stockton and a registered charity committed to promoting the arts as a vital part of societal wellbeing, challenging populist ideas, reaching audience members from under-represented groups and supporting artists in every way we can.
