#Family#Film

Surrounded by four screens and seated on swivelling stools you and your extended family will be able to see a family with kids just like you, through choreographed sequences and candid “off camera” moments as they encounter the many different landscapes of Scotland.

Family Portrait features a film screened in a special set-up, capturing Barrowland Ballet’s Artistic Director, Natasha Gilmore, and her children in an intimate portrayal of family life. Through striking imagery, choreography and intricate soundscapes, a series of narratives unfold.

With space to roam, the children encounter rabbit skulls, converse with spiders, make war paint with berries and discover the fun of playing with their mum. A geographical and emotional journey celebrating getting out into nature peppered with humour and candour, the work shares an honest depiction of what family really is with its relentless and glorious chaos.

Join in the fun with the specially designed activities that accompany the video installation, facilitated with the support of The Kueh Tutus (SG).
