DESCRIPTION:

An audio visual performance by Jenny Sturgeon exploring human connection with the wild.

“I knew when I had looked for a long time that I had hardly begun to see.” Nan Shepherd

​The Living Mountain is an audio-visual performance by Jenny Sturgeon inspired by Nan Shepherd’s celebrated book of the same name. It explores Nan’s writing, the Cairngorm mountain range and human connections with the wild through lyrical, melodic and visual interpretation.

Jenny is working alongside film curator Shona Thomson and filmmaker Robyn Spice. Visuals feature stunning imagery from Scotland: The Big Picture and 1940s archive film from National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive.  The audio and imagery combine to make a meditative experience, a soothing and poignant exploration of what it means to connect with a landscape and find a sense of place.

“A bewitching work of wisdom and light and, for the truth it expresses, the most important record you will listen to this year.” 

The event will open with a short live set from Jenny Sturgeon.
