Judy Garland sang Over The Rainbow four months before her untimely death. In a unique individual moment of undivided love and attention, FK Alexander takes your hand, fixes your gaze and sings to you alongside that very rendition, amidst the live swirls of Glasgow noise-band Okishima Island Tourist Association.

A durational performance installation allowing audience members to freely come and go over 3 hours. Tickets for an intense solo experience are now fully-booked; there may be a few available on the night, first come first served.

If you have booked a 1:1 experience please arrive at least 15min before your slot. Otherwise if you'd like to witness the interactions please feel free to wander in and out of the space across the 3 hours.



'desperate, moving, distressing & beautiful too' Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
