Straight from her acclaimed run at Edinburgh Fringe Mairi Campbell brings her show Pulse to Lyth Arts Centre.
A homecoming in viola, voice, movement, animation and storytelling, Pulse is the story of award-winning musician Mairi Campbell’s quest to heal cultural wounds. From classical training at London’s Guildhall, to love and danger in Mexico and discovering step-dancing in Cape Breton. Co-devised and directed by Kath Burlinson.
Pulse will be followed by a short concert set of Mairi’s songs.
‘Bare and unabashed honesty…by the end of Pulse you’ll feel transformed.’ Three Weeks *****
‘Exquisite blend of skill, art, vitality and expression…Join [Campbell] and be uplifted.’ Musical Theatre Review *****
Campbell “becomes a bold chameleon in her own back-story, switching characters as she goes… On a stage bare but for a rough-hewn pendulum – its flat stone culled from her family’s croft – Campbell opens her throat in a spirit of belonging that is ancient and modern, and life affirming for all of us.” Mary Brennan, Herald ****.
