Event description

Description

“I have walked out of my body and into the mountain" — Nan Shepherd


Join us for Into The Mountain, a remarkable guided walk and performance by artist and choreographer Simone Kenyon. Sharing the culmination of 6 years’ research and collaboration with women who walk in the Cairngorms and with the mountains themselves, these performances will offer audiences the chance to immerse themselves in the extraordinary environment of Glenfeshie. This event brings together three guided walks with a new choreographic and vocal performance created for and with the mountain site. The work is performed by the Into The Mountain company, with vocal scores by artist Hanna Tuulikki, sung by a new choir of women local to the Cairngorms and led by vocalist Lucy Duncombe.

These performances take instruction from the specific site at which they take place as well as from Nan Shepherd’s lyrical and embodied prose in The Living Mountain (1974). Through this approach Kenyon and the wider artistic team explore our inter-relations with the more-than-human, making connections that offer multiple perspectives of this mountainous environment. The performance communicates across microscopic and expansive ecologies, and the sometimes-otherworldly sense of being in place described in Shepherd’s renowned text. This performance event invites the collective endeavour to spend a day walking out of our bodies and into the mountain.


Important information

We will send you an Information Pack the w/c 15 April. This will include information on accommodation, transport, and a list of essentials you will need to bring with you in order to have a pleasant and comfortable experience out in the hills. You must come prepared with all walking and waterproof gear for the unpredictable Scottish weather, snacks and water.

The performance is open to just 30 audience members per performance in order to protect and conserve the site. With three walking groups, there are 10 tickets available per route. Each route is varied in length and requires different levels of fitness and experience. All groups will be guided by a Mountain Leader and a facilitator, who will offer frames to deepen your modes of attention.


Please select a route relative to your hill walking experience and fitness levels:

Short route — This route is an afternoon's guided walk covering approximately 8 km/ 5 miles. The walk including the performance is around 4-5 hours in total. This is the easiest and shortest of the three routes and mostly follows robust paths. You will be making an ascent of around 350m through this route. The walking is varied with some uphill walking at times. This route suits those who are less experienced hillwalkers or don't have the fitness for higher hillwalking.

Mid route — This route is a day's guided walk covering approximately 14 km/ 8.5 miles. The walk including the performance is approx. 5-6 hours in total. You will be making an ascent of around 830m through this route. Please choose this route if you are a fit and confident hill walker and happy out on the hills for the day.

Long route — This route is a day's walk covering approximately 14 km/ 8.5 miles with the most challenging ascents and descents of 920m. To ensure participant safety, this route requires a very good level of fitness and experience of hillwalking or mountaineering in similar sites and conditions.

Please note: More tickets will be released on 3 May 2019. If you are unable to book the route of your choice and experience level we strongly advise that you do not select a route outside of your ability and wait for the second wave of tickets to be released. Participation in all the walks is at the Mountain Leader's discretion.
