Spàrr | Rivet

Wed 27 Oct 2021

In this special Faclan Fringe event, five artists came together to present an extended story based on traditions from the Isle of Lewis and the oral history of Govan.

A blind woman has known tragedy more than once in her life, and does everything in her power to protect the youngest of her four sons from the sea.

Spàrr | Rivet was a collaborative performance, in collaboration with An Lanntair, devised by Ian Stephen with director/performer Laura Cameron-Lewis, and music by Mike Vass / illustrations by Christine Morrison. This event consisted of a film version of the show and a live introduction by the artists.

Part of Faclan 2021.

Spàrr | Rivet was developed with TRACS for the 2021 Scottish International Storytelling Festival.

Faclan Fringe was part-financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community Outer Hebrides Leader 2014-2020 programme.
