Explore the romance and reality of the sea courtesy of Aberdeen Harbour and the MarineTraffic API. By tracking the location of ships, the constantly updated names of the most recently arrived and most recently departed vessels are juxtaposed on the Music Hall's Stepping In Space screen, creating a form of poetic writing.

Irish artist Cliona Harmey's work attempts to interrupt the speed of this instantaneous data stream and return it to the speed of movement of real entities in space. The names include references to Scots and Nordic culture conjuring up historical figures and distant places in this localised iteration of her previous work Dublin Ships (2015).

Atmosphere | Brigadoon

Brigadoon

11th & 12th October 2019. RSVP
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

As part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK wide celebration of movie musicals, we're returning our Atmosphere screening programme to its birthplace, Inspace, for the first time in six years. Back in 2013, on the invitation of the Year of Natural Scotland, we first screened Brigadoon and it became our most fabled Atmosphere.

Shot entirely on a sound stage in Hollywood after director Vincente Minnelli found Scotland wasn't Scottish enough. Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse star in this 1954 MGM musical. Guest augmentoligists returning include Pyrus Botanicals. Anything is possible... even miracles. The mists will once again clear, to reveal the mythical village.
