Recent performance at The Alford Mart and Heritage Centre: The Living Museum July 2012

Into the Wild creatures, now homeless,  were resident at the Alford Old Mart and Heritage Centre in summer 2012. The original Animal Mart houses many objects donated by local people providing a unique glimpse into farming life of the North East.  The audience were invited to explore the "living museum" before joining the cast in a 1940's dance hall created in the mart arena.

Fabiana Galante's Soundscape

Fabiana Galante from Argentina has spent six weeks in Huntly working with the Huntly Writers Group on creating a Woodland Orchestra. The writers used their poems as a starting point for a spoken sound-piece directed by Fabiana as a homage to the woods. The orchestra performed the piece live in the Cafe
and recordings are available. The sound installation in the woods consisted of Jelka's interviews and  Fabiana's work with the writers with their poems composed into a sound-scape. Fabiana also provided the only piece of music in the woodland promenade played by Pam the "crow" on a fiddle.

1st weekend of Into the Wild


Huntly Writers with Fabiana

Having tea while waiting.

The first weekend was a great success with over 180 people coming to the performance promenade in the woods.

The first weekend featured the Into the Wild cafe, a performance by the Woodland Orchestra and the promenade around the woods. If people come early to the Battlehill Woods they can relax in deckchairs, taking in the woods and listening to Jelka and Fabianna's sound installations. Each day 5 groups of 25 people are led by a guide - Into the Wild to spot the local wildlife !
