Three artists would like to create an aerial dance piece with the support of the Gaelic Department at the University of Glasgow over five days to create an aerial dance piece and a piece of creative writing in local nature reserves, which will be made into a short film in Gaelic.


During the project, the three artists will deliver four hour-long workshops on circus skills and writing through the medium of Gaelic taking place over two weeks with the P7G class at Condobharait Primary School, discussing the environment and the heritage of the area, and then the film will be shown in the Comar-nan-Allt Theatre

Project update:

The project went ahead successfully, working closely with various organisations, especially Condobharait Primary School and Comar-nan-Allt Theatre, which are based in the town. The artists worked closely together in the creation of the film script and a poem was written also. In the workshops, the students thought about the connection between the natural world and the things made by humans, and this was the inspiration for the short film that was made. The film was 10 minutes long and was shown at the Comar-nan-Allt Theater on the 12th of September at 11am.
