Spring Residency 2015

Floodplain: a creative theatre residency for story makers

 4 – 11 April 2015

The theme for this residency was drawn from the land it took place on. Invererne and its surroundings face a changing environment; the house sits on a floodplain close to the river Findhorn and the North Sea. Flood defences are being erected. Invererne is on the wrong side of these defences.

With this present in mind artists were invited to respond to questions such as – what might it be like to live on a changing landscape? What kind of art might emerge from such a place?

The residency was primarily aimed at writers; however in keeping with our belief in the importance of artistic cross-polination the group also included theatre devisers, a spoken word artist, a performance maker, and a clown. You can read some responses from participants here.
