Viking Invasion

Kiltarlity Forres

Qualified performance artist Aliza Graham was commissioned to facilitate a series of workshops and training sessions that brought together parkour, circus skills, drama, character development, stage fighting and costume making for local young people to attend during the summer of 2015. Supported by expertise from Ruaraidh Milne of Fly Agaric Performing Arts, local young parkourists and Out of the Darkness Theatre Company, a group of 12 young people developed a performance piece of Viking Invasion which was showcased at the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival 2015 near Kiltarlity. Some of the performers reunited to stage a Viking Invasion with a performance Viking Village during Culture Day Forres 2015 and Viking Explorer walkabout performers contributed to the Culture Day Forres 2016 extravaganza.

Project Dates: May to September 2015, September 2016
