A National Theatre of Scotland and Royal Society of Edinburgh co-production.

Created by award-winning writer and performer Hannah Lavery, Thirteen Fragments is an artistic response to the RSE’s Post-Covid-19 Commission’s work, addressing how Scotland can emerge from the Covid pandemic as a more equitable, resilient society. The digital artwork reflects Hannah’s experiences of the last year, as a woman of colour, and explores the meaning of female resilience in Scotland today and aspirations for the future.

The accompanying panel discussion involves Hannah Lavery in conversation with RSE Fellows Talat Yaqoob and Zinnie Harris. Their discussion takes the film as a starting point, and explores the key themes, including the impact of Covid-19 on women and wider society, and the role that art and creativity play in the pandemic.

Written and Directed by: Hannah Lavery Film Maker: Beth Chalmers Choreographer: Nat McCleary Composer: Beldina Odenyo
