This blog documents Oh My God - I'm Scottish too!!, an independent performance research project conducted by Rachael Clerke in the autumn of 2011 which aimed to examine and critique the nature of Scottish identity politics on both a personal and national level. This investigation resulted in the creation of three alter-egos as 'The Big Men of Scotland' (Alex Salmond, Donald Trump and William Wallace as portrayed by Mel Gibson in Braveheart), the publication 'Oh My God - I'm Scottish too!! (which can be viewed at the top of this blog) and a performance lecture entitled 'How to Achieve Redemption as a Scot through the Medium of Braveheart', which premiered at Glasgow Buzzcut festival on 17th March 2012.
The blog's quiet, and so am I - tucked away furiously writing and talking to myself (quietly, in the library) to get this presentation done. I'll post a full transcript of the talk up here once it's over for anyone who's interested. For now - here are some other places I would like to Braveheart.
1. Braveheart for Celtic fans 2. Braveheart at Stirling Bridge 3. Braveheart for tourists
Now I must get back to writing and talking to myself quietly.
