Hebridean Treasure: Lost & Found (theatre) – Sat 19th March, 7.30pm
Saturday, March 19, 2022 , 7:30 pm
In song, dance and narrative, the inspiring story of a people’s soul.
In Hebridean Treasure: Lost & Found internationally acclaimed writer, John Philip Newell, works with some of Scotland’s most talented young artists to tell the story of the Celtic spiritual tradition of the Scottish Hebrides using song, dance and narrative to convey both the richness of the tradition in its awareness of the earth, and its decimation in the Highland Clearances of the 19th century.
Throughout the performance, composer and Gaelic singer Mischa Macpherson weaves her music around the compelling performance of Bharatanatyam dancer Kirsten Newell, achieving what has never been attempted before – a memory of the forgotten influence of India on the Celtic soul.
In the retelling of a Scottish tragedy, Newell invites awareness of the universal story of the displacement of native peoples and the consequent loss of ancient wisdom. Hebridean Treasure moves through tragedy to portray the recovery of spiritual vision for the ecological crises of today with beauty, pathos, and hope.
“Hebridean Treasure is a moving meditation on Celtic spirituality – both dance and poem; lament and love song; prayer and blessing”
