Where We Land

Where We Land: A Storied Isle

Written and performed by Jacqueline Harris

Music composed and performed by Lee Affen

Film and live projection by Graham Kay


I lived on Arran for three and a half years. The show is an intimate and immersive multimedia storytelling experience that uses spoken word, recorded interviews, film, projection and both a live and recorded original musical score/soundscape to create a space of shared storytelling and story making. It weaves real life recorded stories, folktale and autobiography into a single narrative encouraging us to question the relationships between our personal stories, the landscapes we inhabit and the lives we live there.

I took Lee and Graham back to Arran with me. We visited people I knew and listened to their stories together. One day we coerced staff and customers at the small yet perfect bakery to record some dialogue from “The Mermaid Wife” for us. We spent a day with the seals at Kildonan. Together and separately we wandered, watched, listened, wrote, filmed and recorded. 

This show began as an exploration of what Arran meant to me and the people I know there, but then it also became an exploration of what happened when Lee, Graham and myself began to make the show, but at its heart is the island itself and the people who live there.

Here’s the trailer both of and about the show:
