MAIRI CAMPBELL: PULSE (THE PLAY) and CONCERT
4th September 2016
Straight from her acclaimed run at Edinburgh Fringe Mairi Campbell brings her show Pulse to Lyth Arts Centre.
A homecoming in viola, voice, movement, animation and storytelling, Pulse is the story of award-winning musician Mairi Campbell's quest to heal cultural wounds. From classical training at London's Guildhall, to love and danger in Mexico and discovering step-dancing in Cape Breton. Co-devised and directed by Kath Burlinson.
Pulse will be followed by a short concert set of Mairi's songs.
‘Bare and unabashed honesty...by the end of Pulse you’ll feel transformed.’ Three Weeks
*‘Exquisite blend of skill, art, vitality and expression...Join [Campbell] and be uplifted.’ Musical Theatre Review
*Campbell "becomes a bold chameleon in her own back-story, switching characters as she goes... On a stage bare but for a rough-hewn pendulum - its flat stone culled from her family’s croft - Campbell opens her throat in a spirit of belonging that is ancient and modern, and life affirming for all of us." Mary Brennan, Herald

The ancient folklore tradition of ‘buying the wind' was common across Caithness and the fishing routes of the North Atlantic. The tradition involved sailors purchasing 3 knots of thread, rope or fabric, to be undone as wind is required, but the mariner is instructed on no account to untie the third knot, as it may start a hurricane.
