Into The Mountain was a project created by artist and choreographer Simone Kenyon. Informed by the ecologies and environments of the Cairngorms, and the lyrical and embodied prose of Nan Shepherd's The Living Mountain, the project explored and celebrated women's relationships with Scotland's Mountains.
The project culminated in May 2019 with guided walks and a performance deep within Glen Feshie. The work was performed over four days by the Into The Mountain dancers, with vocal scores by artist Hanna Tuulikki sung by a new choir of local women and led by vocalist Lucy Duncombe.
The performances took instruction from the site and were used as an invitation towards the possibilities for transformation and the more-than-human connections to be made within the mountains.
