About Us

About About Us

About Us is a spectacular open-air event that combines live shows and multimedia installations exploring our infinite connections to our planet, the wider cosmos and each other. If you’ve ever looked up in awe at the night sky and wondered how you’re linked to the stars beyond, this is the show for you.

About Us uses cutting-edge projection mapping, animation, music, poetry and live performance to celebrate our extraordinary connections to everything around us: past, present and future. Created by 59 Productions, Stemettes and The Poetry Society in collaboration with poets and scientists across the UK, this epic free show will be projected at night onto the walls of Paisley Abbey.

Everything is connected
Our journey begins 13.8 billion years ago with the Big Bang. This explosive moment led to the evolution of everything on Earth, and the process it started is still unfolding in the right-here, right-now of the 21st century.

Look around! You’ll find networks of connection everywhere:

• We are stardust. Every atom of our being can be traced back to deep space and time.
• We are ecosystems. There are more non-human cells than human cells both in and on our bodies, and we couldn’t survive without them.
• We are animals. The human family tree connects back to every living thing on earth.
• We are social creatures. We give our lives meaning through our relationships with people around us and the wider world beyond.

By lifting the lid on how each and every one of us is an intricate part of the universe, we’ll show the magic and wonder of the everyday as we celebrate everything About Us.
