The shimmering heat of tropical hills, and the purring and humming of the Sri Lankan plains are finely tuned into existence by a young woman on a quest to find her echo in a world of repetition.

Caught in an elaborate game of call and response with a shape-shifting being which only comes to life at night, she modulates between states of dream and wakefulness in search of harmony.

Inspired by an artist residency in Sri Lanka and featuring elements of local song poetry, Make A HOO combines vivid sonic environments and dynamic physicality to weave together the story of a day and a night in the life of this young woman as she strives to reconnect with her identity and the world in which she lives.

“Inventive and touching”****** The Scotsman

“Startling visuals that go from an insect’s view of undergrowth to a monochromed kaleidoscope on a back screen, Pieraccini creates an absorbing and strangely recognisable world”***** Edinburgh Guide

My Mountain Life: Simon Yates

On the remote Siula Grande in Peru in June 1985, mountaineer Simon Yates found himself in a desperately unenviable position.

He was slowly being pulled off the mountain face by his injured partner, Joe Simpson, dangling on the rope 50 metres below. His decision to cut the rope saved both their lives in the epic of survival that followed and with the publication of the book ‘Touching The Void’ and the later film, both climbers became household names.

It was an experience that could have put many off the sport of mountaineering - but not Simon. Over 30 years later, he is still a very active exploratory climber and guide, making several expeditions to the mountains each year. From the Arctic to the Antarctic, Alaska to Central Asia there is hardly a significant range that he has not visited.

Come along and witness Simon’s tireless journey from that mountain in Peru to some of the remotest on the planet and share with him the drama, excitement and beauty of modern, lightweight alpinism. Told with wit, dry humour and lavishly illustrated with images and video collected on his great climbs.
