Highlight Arts brings you a dynamic dialogue between archival Scottish film work relating to Greenland, a powerful contemporary sound work responding to it, and a contemporary, Greenlandic, personal voice

This special HIGHLIGHT ARCTIC evening will feature a screening of rarely seen filmic works by pioneering Scottish botanist and explorer Isobel Wylie Hutchison, accompanied by a newly-commissioned live musical score by Scotland-based contemporary composer Atzi Muramatsu, and a performance/poetry reading by cutting edge Greenlandic Inuit performance artist Jessie Kleemann.

Hutchison’s short films – Kayak Rolling, The Great Jakobshavn Iceberg Bank and Flowers and Coffee Party at Umanak – inform new works by two contemporary artists, setting up connections between the past and the present, across continents, time, viewpoints and identities.

In addition, the live performances will be followed by an informal conversation between the artists and Highlight Arts. This will allow the audience to ask questions and hear the thoughts behind the project as well as the works featured on the night.
