An interactive video installation, projected across four screens with accompanying soundscape combining striking imagery and choreography; Family Portrait captures Barrowland Ballet’s Artistic Director, Natasha Gilmore, and her children in an intimate portrayal of family life. Taking you on a geographical and emotional journey through Scottish landscapes, it celebrates getting out into nature. With space to roam, the children encounter rabbit skulls, converse with spiders, make war paint with berries and bury their mother in bark sharing insight into what it is to be a single parent to three young children.

With humour and candour, the work shares an honest depiction of what family really is – responsibility, joy, balance, intimacy and love.  

Duration: 35 mins
