Description

Norse stories form the inspiration for this performance by Nordic Viola. Award-winning Irish composer Linda Buckley’s Aud draws on the Icelandic Sagas. Lillie Harris’ Elsewhen seeks to capture the strangeness, wonder, and melancholy of Orkney’s ancient sites, whilst in Carry His Relics, Orkney composer Gemma McGregor describes a journey along the St Magnus Way. Faroese composer Eli Tausen á Lava draws on legends of the Selkies common across the North. The music is accompanied on screen by stunning video curated by Craig Sinclair and abstract art in response to the music by Orla Stevens. MadeInScotlandShowcase.com

  • Character Introduction Details
  • Additional information: The company is happy to meet with audiences ahead of the show and talk them through it - most pieces in the show are preceded by a short introduction by Katherine Wren. One piece has some high pitches and a slight eeriness to it, and the film for that piece features the use of a craft knife. This will be flagged to audiences ahead of time with the opportunity for them to skip that piece. The company are happy for people to move around/make noise during the performance, admit latecomers, allow readmittance and babes in arms. There are natural breaks between pieces during the performance so readmittance will be very straightforward. The relaxed performance will also be sold at limited capacity to allow social distancing/ease of movement for audiences. For further information please call 0131 556 9579 or email [email protected]
