  2. Hanna Tuulikki’s Women of the Hill is a song-cycle for three female performers responding to the archaeology and topography of High Pasture Cave, an iron-age sacred site dedicated to a matriarchal culture on the Isle of Skye.

    Commissioned by ATLAS Arts for the 31st October 2015, the site-specific performance originally took place at the hidden entrance to the cave, making use of the natural echo phenomena of the hill. It has now been re-imagined for a theatre setting and will be re-staged for the first time at CCA, featuring the original performers – Nerea Bello, Lucy Duncombe and Hanna Tuulikki – with costume elements made from plant materials by Caroline Dear.

    The female trio will guide the audience across a threshold, on a song-journey through three worlds: Past, Present and Otherworld. Making visible what has lain hidden and audible what has been forgotten, this contemporary rite will summon the mysterious young woman interred at High Pasture Cave; the women who ground grain, spun yarn and watched over the hearth; and the female deities – Bride and Cailleach – who, according to myth, do battle each year at the meeting of the seasons.

  3. A live performance in the gallery exploring female Cynics, language and spam, interacting with installed works in the exhibition Lilt Twang Tremor.

    Searchlights refers to a quote from Chris Kraus’ book Torpor where she speaks of wanting to find a place in the world for the female voice. After playing a Lydia Lunch song Spooky Little Boy on repeat for an entire day whilst being accidentally locked in an apartment by her neglectful partner, she writes, “the voice was everything, a searchlight in the darkened apartment”; she then describes the female voice as “a dirge for everything”.

    The Cynic history is revisited to explore elements of language that have a particular gendered resonance; highlighting the flow of things - words - traded in a capitalist marketplace. The piece is a collaboration with musician Donald Hayden, and treats the voice as a searchlight calling on the listener to wake up and the strength gained through the union of the two voices together.
