Story Makars

  • An Lanntair Kenneth Street Stornoway, Scotland, HS1 2DS United Kingdom (map)

Story Makars at An Lanntair: Writer and performer Gerda Stevenson will read from a new collection of poetry, alongside showings of three short films by Orkney-born filmmaker Margaret Tait.

Jessica Danz will perform an original live score written specially for Tait's haunting work 'These Walls'.  The silent film is an impression of the interior of Tait's studio premises in Rose Street, Edinburgh. It has been suggested that the film was made as she was preparing to move out of the studio - it is composed mainly of close-ups and panning shots of the walls, and gives a sense of time inexorably passing in the small, simply furnished space.
