Today is a great day. Not only is it World Party Day – positioned rather awkwardly in the middle of the working week – it’s the start of The Arches’ Behaviour festival.

Until 11th May, Behaviour’s programme of original live performance will see a rich variety of Scottish and international talent take the stage at The Arches, Tramway, and some unusual spaces around Glasgow – including, for Nic Green’s waste-themed piece Shadowlands, an operational landfill site.

Other highlights are #Torycore – an absolute must-see for anyone who’s ever wondered what George Osborne’s budget speech sounds like performed by a death metal band – and Kieran Hurley’s part-gathering, part-gig, part-play, Rantin.

At the heart of this year’s event is the Auteurs Project, in which five works-in-progress by the country’s most exciting artists are showcased as part of a new partnership with National Theatre of Scotland.

With festival passes from £35 and a few individual shows free of charge, this is the most affordable opportunity to feast your eyes on some of the world’s most innovative theatrical creations this side of the Fringe.
