Rural Nations CIC artists pitch new show at FST Early Dialogue Day at Brunton Theatre
Muriel Ann Macleod, Alex Patience and Donald MacNeil were selected to pitch ideas for their new show Wild at the Federation of Scottish Theatre Early Dialogue Day on the 2nd of March 2016 at the Brunton Theatre Edinburgh. On this day, producing companies and artists presented work, which is at the very early stages of creation, to venues, promoters and producers with the capacity to produce the work of other artists. This process provides an opportunity for both parties to discuss artistic plans 12 – 24 months in advance of production stage and for promoters/venues/producers to feed back and express their interest.
Wild will use the traditional Northern stories of eagles snatching babies and factual references to our relationship with eagles and the wild land they inhabit to reflect on the tension between man and the natural world. The performance aims to provoke us to consider the value of wild land and asks us to question how we live in the natural world today and how much we are interested or even care about our natural environment.
Rural Natiosn plan to develop this show for touring in 2017 in consultation with the RSPB, The North Harris Trust and other Agencies.
