Vision Mechanics has already taken Drift to 2 locations on our tour and are currently performing at Skaw Beach on Unst as part of Shetland Nature Festival and UnstFest.
We have been overwhelmed by the really positive and heartfelt response to the show so far. Here is a small sample of comments from audience members:
“Drift is superb dont miss out on a chance to experience it. Today’s haar gave a perfect backdrop for an emotional feast of sound, sight, touch & imagination.” Chas (Nairn)
“A wonderful theatrical experience on Nairn beach…Director, Symon Macintyre has orchestrated the work of artists and musicians to deliver an emotional, immersive experience which cleverly explores new dimensions of Betty’s solitude. The songs and tunes on the production’s mp3 player were beautifully performed and the visual art was varied and imaginative.” Elizabeth (Nairn)
“Thoroughly enjoyed this production. The walk in, the outdoor environment and set participation all added to living the story along with Betty. Drift is a journey.” Stacia (Pettycur Bay)
“I went today. It’s brilliant. Loved the atmosphere it creates and how it pulls you in – completely. I didn’t know though that you could turn the mobiles in the captains booth. So I want to go again. Go if you can. Everyone should know about Betty Mouat.” Alison (Pettycur Bay)
