Into The Mountain, 2018-19

Into the Mountain is a place relational performance project. Inspired and informed by the lyrical and embodied prose of Nan Shepherd’s 1974 book, The Living Mountain, the project explores and celebrates women’s relationships with mountainous environments. Six years in the making, this year-long work included the curation of educational and professional workshops, symposium, traineeships and performance event in collaboration with organisations across arts and mountaineering organisations and estate land management sector.
