WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
'Summer on the high plateau can be as delectable as honey; it can also be a roaring scourge. To those who love the place, both are good, since both are part of its essential nature. And it is to know its essential nature that I am seeking here.' Nan Shepherd, The Living Mountain. A solo performance uncovering the subtle shifts and developing perceptions of a place. Investigating what elements of the mountain the walker brings back upon her return. Physical conversations move in relation to the prose of The Living Mountain, exploring the encounter and the attempts to develop an understanding of a place through the physical act of being there. Into the Mountain will be the first of a series of performance works in relation to the Cairngorms Mountains in North East Scotland.
