16 MAGFEST: WRITER’S BLOCK (World Premiere)

, Start Time: 21:30, End Time: 22:30 Orkney Theatre The Meadows, Kirkwall KW15 1QN

One of Orkney’s finest young musicians, Eric Linklater, creates a combination of music, song and theatre in a conceptual piece specially commissioned by St Magnus International Festival.   Moving away from his comfort zone of traditional music, Linklater’s new work wrestles with the creative struggles, pressures and blocks for any artists in the context of society’s and their own limiting beliefs. Sometimes, propelled deep into the recesses of their own mind, artists discover "inspiration" has been stored deep all along.

For this show Eric Linklater works with the talented musicians of The Assembly Project and various colleagues and friends from Orkney.
