Into The Mountain culminated in a series of guided walks and performances over four days, deep within Glen Feshie in the Cairngorms National Park. Leading the audiences towards the performance site were three teams of a facilitator and mountain leader, guiding small groups of 10 into the mountain through exercises and readings of Nan Shepherd’s The Living Mountain. The exercises drew inspiration from Nan’s unique approach to being in the mountains, with an embodied approach to connecting and understanding the ecologies on a micro and macro scale.

Walk facilitators were Saffy Setohy, Mags Kerr and Jean Langhorn.
Mountain leaders were Heather Morning, Kathy Grindrod and Sue Savege.
