‘Travellers’ is a filmed dance piece, performed by Eden Court Adult Performance Group.
The choreography and content of the piece were inspired by the shared experiences of the performers and Syrian women living in the Highlands of Scotland.
The two groups came together to dance, talk and laugh over a number of weeks. The adult performance group then drew on these interactions to create a piece of dance expressing their shared impressions and reflections.
This is the first time that Eden Court has actively participated in Refugee Festival Scotland. The group shared their excitement at being part of it:
“Refugee Festival Scotland is an opportunity to share the experiences of people living in the Highlands, and the diversity of people living in the Highlands. It is also an opportunity to reflect upon what more needs to be done to ensure the Highlands is a welcoming and inclusive place for all cultures.”
