The Janitor (2018 - Highland Youth Arts Club)

In 2018 I was invited to join artists from Moniack Mhor and Room 13 International to bring young people into Urquhart Castle and explore it through their own creativity.

Together we found our way in and out of every corner of the Castle - thinking, writing, experimenting and performing - before sharing our work with another group who had spent the same period in Fort George.

In this project I found myself working alongside participants towards the creation of a character entitled The Janitor, and together we built a custom medieval helmet incorporating remotely controlled audio playback, and a library of phrases in a more-than-human voice we designed together.

This project was organised by the Highland Youth Arts Hub, Feisean nan Gaidheal and Historic Environment Scotland.
