Crashing waves

FROM SHORELINE TO DEEP SEA

The red sun sinks
In golden floods of light; and with the breeze
Comes faintly now across the grassy links
The ageless music of the rolling seas.

- Robert Rendall

An immersive experience will allow you to take your own path inside St Magnus Cathedral which will feature a sequence of performances inhabiting all parts of this iconic space with music, poetry, dance and visual art. Whether you want to watch or listen the choice is yours. Experience performances close up or listen from another corner of the building. Or simply sit and let the experience wash over you. Romitelli’s Seascape for Bass recorder sits alongside Peter Maxwell Davies’ Sea Eagle and spoken text from Orkney poets Mackay Brown and Rendall and others. A still gallery filled with a mixtape of sea themed work.

Performers include:

Nicolas Dupont Violin
Rookh Horn Quartet
Tabea Debus Recorder
Christine J Lee Cello
Jim Carruth Speaker
Oliver Wass Harp
 

Dancers from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland 

Art installations by local artists
