In autumn 2016, David Archibald and Carl Lavery established the Glasgow Glam Rock Dialogues. The aim was to imagine a theatrical conceit for a series of performances in which they could approach pressing political and aesthetic issues. Between August and October they wrote and performed three dialogues: Work, a response to the Universal Basic Income at Fika café, Partick; Luxury, which examined the historian Kristin Ross’s concept of ‘communal luxury’ at Market Gallery in Dennistoun, and Commune, which responded to Peter Watkins’s film La Commune (Paris, 1871) performed for Document Film Festival at the CCA, and once more at Glasgow School of Art to mark the launch of issue 56 of The Drouth. Below, in an attempt to understand what they’ve been up to, Carl and David dialogue about the dialogues, transforming the page into a stage.
