Fuaigh – Interweaving

Using song, story, imagery and dance, Fuaigh – Interweaving looks at the consequences of losing words, land and language and being forced to the edge.

Fuaigh is a Gaelic theatre experience based on the theme of Home and Away. Using song, story, imagery and dance, Fuaigh looks at the consequences of losing words, land and language and being forced to the edge. Directed by John Binnie, written and performed by Rona MacDonald, with music and performance by GIllebride MacMillan and visuals by Judith Parrott – welcome to a Gaelic Ceilidh which starts on the island of South Uist, leaves for the Big City of Glasgow and comes home again; a celebration of the spirit of belonging, leaving and returning.

Featuring Guthan an Iar, community singers from South Uist, and some of Glasgow University’s Gaelic student community.

Devised with the people of South Uist and Govan, by an artistic team including celebrated singer and musician Gillebride McMillan, playwright and poet Rona MacDonald, visual artist and photographer Judith Parrott and director and writer John Binnie.
