Sharmanka - Review

Sharmanka Kinetic theatre is a really bizarre but lovely attraction in Glasgow. You will need to book tickets for the show in advance but it is worth the effort. The show is simply spectacular and tourists love to witness this unique spectacle that could hardly be found anywhere else.

The Show includes the use of light, sound, music, sculpture, puppets and movement to create an exuberant and astonishing theatre piece. There may be different themes to the show but the basic idea remains more or less the same. Odd objects like type-writers, scrap metal and what not have been used to make this very strange show. It is rather hard to explain the experience in the place due to its very unique nature but if you are an art lover with a penchant for the eccentric, do not miss out on this one.

Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Glasgow itinerary 3 days.

Sharmanka, Glasgow Reviews

  • Very creative and personal... A variety of marionette like machines (that isn't a good description, sorry) move and make sounds to compliment a variety of musical pieces. It sort of reminded me of the movie Coraline but 100x better!

  • Weird, wacky and wonderful. Definitely worth a visit but I recommend the 1hr show. We went to the 40minute show and didn't see the older pieces in action. Definitely a hidden gem based on the 1st floor of a council building in Trongate

  • Quite stunning -- unlike anything else you'll have seen. Complex moving mechanical sculptures, full of intricate details, and suffused with a dark, melancholic Russian humour. Beautifully lit and choreographed. It's worth booking the longer show, to see all of the pieces. Probably not suitable for under 12.

  • A must see! This fantastic kinetic theatre is one of my favorite things to see in Glasgow. The sculptures are set off and come to life with there movement, lighting and music. I recommend going to the longer show as you get to see more of the sculptures (some are getting quite fragile so they are only turned on a couple of times a week at the longer shows). Every time I go to Sharmanka I am transported by the theater to another world. It is a really magical show with humour in there too. Wheelchairs... go for it. :) it is a bit of a squeeze but every time I have been here people have been very kind and accommodating to everyone. It is good to let them know though. There is a wee comments box when you book your tickets on line so you can tell them their or you can just give them a ring to let them know. Tickets... book! It is not unlikely that they will be fully booked so I recommend that you book your tickets on line. Subway... It's easy to get there on the subway. Just get off at St. Enoch station go up to Argyle St. Turn right and it's about 5 min along that road on the right hand side.

  • Very interesting and thought provoking experience. Definitely recommend for people who enjoy art and love interpreting it!
