We begin our eight-week journey in the Highlands of Scotland hosted by Eddie and Donna Stiven in Balcraggie, Glenelg. Eddie Stiven is a Scottish playwright who has run cultural programs in the Highlands and Islands for visiting students from abroad since 1996 and is an expert highland storyteller. This week will include visits to cultural centers of training, both on the Isle of Skye and in Plockton, and personal interaction with the local community within Glenelg.
This week offers a time for personal reflection and creative musings preparing the company for the quick pace of Glasgow and our intensive class/rehearsal schedule. At the end of the week we gather with the Glenelg community for a Ceilidh (KAY LEE), an evening of shared poetry, storytelling, music and dance.
