The Morrich Project

The Morrich Project is a work is progress from dance artist Julia McGhee.

 

Julia takes inspiration from an area of land near her home in Easter Ross, called Morrich More - an extensive area of strand plain and dune grassland on the South shore of the Dornoch Firth. It is walking distance (at low tide) from Inver and is an area of Special Scientific Interest and Special Area of Conservation. It is also forms part of RAF Tain, which is the largest MOD live fire aerial weapons range in the UK,

 

Julia will work with four artists - Saffy Setohy, Penny Chivas, Nicolette Macleod and Robbie Synge - to investigate artistic responses to this landscape in multiple forms: live contemporary physical performance outdoors and indoors, soundscape and screendance.

Next sharing at Seaboard Centre, Balintore, on September 17 2021

#DontStopTheFlames

With its over-50s performance company The Flames, Tricky Hat’s latest project is #DontStopTheFlames, a series of 8 films about lives and hopes and dreams in the post-Covid world.

 

#DontStopTheFlames demonstrates Tricky Hat’s importance in the creative world with this dynamic performance company, shattering preconceptions of ageing, and embracing new digital skills.

 

Many of The Flames raged against the digital world pre Covid, but some have now been given iPads and training to film themselves, some are being filmed at a social distance, but they are all at home and telling their stories about a new way of living.

The project is supported by Creative Scotland and British Council, facilitated by Scottish Government, and Sendai Cultural Fund.

 

All the films are free to view, and are available for venues to share as part of their digital programming:
