In Glasgow

The Grounded exhibition, a commission by Glasgow Life for Festival 2014 Commonwealth Games, has also shown since at An Lanntair Art Gallery in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, as a partner event at Hebtember Festival and at The Judith Wright Centre for Contemporary Arts in Brisbane, before beginning its two-and-a -half year tour of Queensland with Flying Arts Alliance.

Grounded continues its tour, with upcoming venues at:
Goondiwindi Art Space – 11 March – 22 April, 2017
Mundubbera Regional Art Gallery 5th May 2017 – 28th June 2017
Gladstone Regional Art Gallery 22 July to 26 August, 2017
Tableland Regional Art Gallery, Atherton Dec’17 – Jan ‘18

You can link to information about the exhibition at these links: Introductory panel in English and Introductory panel in Gaelic. In brief, Grounded is the creative outcome from two residencies: one in the Gaelic speaking Outer Hebrides of Scotland, and one with Australian Aboriginal Nations of the central deserts. The images, sounds, audiovisuals and stories are set side by side to draw on parallels that cross continents and nations. Two places with nothing and everything in common.

Fuaigh at Tramway, Glasgow

Fuaigh was shown by National Theatre Scotland as part of its Home Away Festival, alongside a week of performances from Chicago, New Delhi, Brisbane, Dundee, Tomintoul and Glenlivet, Glasgow, Jamaica, the World Wide Web and Rio de Janeiro.

“Fuaigh centres around a traditional Gaelic Ceilidh. Using evocative song and dance, combined with striking visuals and a compelling narrative, the show will explore what happens when you leave behind your homeland and sail away to the metropolis. Fuaigh is an exciting new Gaelic theatre experience, promising a unique night at the theatre. Devised by an artistic team including celebrated singer and performer Gillebride McMillan, playwright and performer Rona MacDonald, visual artist and photographer Judith Parrott and director and writer John Binnie”.

Fuaigh is performed in Gaelic and English.

The audience are invited to join us at the fire towards the end of the play. They bring with them something they would like to save from the fire, or an acknowledgement of their family line.  A short clip can be viewed on this link at Vimeo

Review by Tom Chadwick, Chairman of Enterprise Music Scotland:

Fuaigh is a truly excellent show! Rona, Judith, John and Gillebride should be extremely proud of what is in my view a masterpiece. I would give it at least seven stars. The singing was really lovely and the stories and images warm and beautiful. The funeral scene and the Paisley bard trying to burn his work were really emotional, but the warmth that shone brightly through the entire event, the brilliant mixing of your singers with an obviously enthusiastic and encaptured audience during the dancing etc. really made Fuaigh what I guess it actually means. The lovely photography and inspired use of the beautifully smooth stones. The dram at the ceilidh. We really did feel as though we were from South Uist ourselves! You made a big impression on us all which I am sure will live in our memories. You also attracted a very large and one of the most diverse audiences that we have been in and left us all with some Gaelic.
Outstanding!
Thank you very much indeed!

Grounded explored by the children of Ntaria

arts education

The first colour swatches created by Leverhulme School, Isle of Harris

We are very excited that the Year 8 children of Ntaria school (Northern Territory, Australia) have joined in the Colour of Language arts educational project that came out of Grounded’s showing at An Lanntair in Stornoway, Scotland.

The children have looked at Western Arrarnta trees, shrubs, flowers and earth and painted the colours that they saw and experienced, and added the Western Arrarnta words. Their work will be exhibited alongside Leverhulme Memorial Gaelic School (Isle of Harris, Scotland) and Lional Gaelic School (Isle of Lewis, Scotland), and other schools that join in along the course of the project. I look forward to soon being able to post their work here.

If you are connected to a Gaelic school or Australian Aboriginal school, and you are interested in joining, please do contact me via this blog.

Thank you also to Greg who recorded the BBC Radio Scotland Voices of the Commonwealth interview we did in Glasgow during the Grounded exhibition at Festival 2014. The radio interview, which explores some of the concepts behind Grounded, is now available for listening to here.
