Norse stories form the inspiration for this performance by Nordic Viola. Award-winning Irish composer Linda Buckley’s Aud draws on the Icelandic Sagas. Lillie Harris’ Elsewhen seeks to capture the strangeness, wonder, and melancholy of Orkney’s ancient sites, whilst in Carry His Relics, Orkney composer Gemma McGregor describes a journey along the St Magnus Way. Faroese composer Eli Tausen á Lava draws on legends of the Selkies common across the North. The music is accompanied on screen by stunning video curated by Craig Sinclair and abstract art in response to the music by Orla Stevens.
