Watch Broth Live on Live Stream on Thursday 8th October at 2.30PM BST 



BROTH is an honest exploration of the experience of elders in 21st century Scotland, told by artist Donna Rutherford, through the tradition of soup making. It explores the rituals and revelations that trace changes in people’s lives, families and wider communities through a series of personal storytelling conversations. 

“There was not sympathy, but identification, a shift from them to we. In an era where youth is elevated, I was struck by people whose youth has never left them although their bodies age, memories of time spent with others become their ‘pillars of survival’ as physical challenge and short term memory loss set in. The perspectives in Broth provide material to begin a re-imagining of all our later years."  Dr Pete Seaman - Glasgow Population Centre for Health

Music for BROTH is by Inge Thomson
