“Welcome to our new what’s on guide, chronological in order with discovery at its heart.” Whether it is Film, Art, Music or the Performing Arts this is your guide to Shetland Arts and its venues.

Shetland Arts Development Agency manages Bonhoga, The Garrison Theatre & Mareel. We also develop and promote a year round programme of film, music, theatre, literature, visual arts, & dance events. Our vision is for a creative, connected Shetland that values art and culture and the transformative impact it can have on everyone’s life; a Shetland that nurtures and celebrates its own creative talents and is open to all cultures and lifestyles; a Shetland where no one feels isolated and where culture is core to ensuring the economic and social wellbeing of all its residents. Supported by Creative Scotland and core funded by the Shetland Charitable Trust. Shetland Arts is a registered charity (SCO37082). Registered office: Mareel, Lerwick, ZE1 0WQ

One of the great joys of my job is the diversity of what we do. One of the challenges is how we communicate this range of events, workshops and exhibitions effectively. I hope this new week by week design will not only help you find what you are looking for, but also discover something new, something that will excite and inspire you. We are experimenting with two different formats of What’s on Guide this month looking for your feedback on which one to adopt. One is a calendar fold, the other a more traditional booklet style. Please do let us know what you think, either by emailing admin@shetlandarts. org or by letting a Front of House assistant know what you think. Shetland Folk Festival kicks off our month with six performances in Mareel, whilst folk enthusiasts should also note the 30th for a performance by the anarchic and gutsy Lankum. We are hosting a mini festival of Children’s Theatre with Baba Yaga and Eddie and the Slumber Sisters in mid May and Beyond Bonhoga heads to Bressay Lighthouse for an exhibition by Amanda Welch. Dance fans should look out for the film screening of Akram Khan’s bewitching interpretation of Giselle on the 13th.

The Mareel Café Bar will be closed from the 7th - 11th so we can carry out essential maintenance, but you will still be able to get teas, coffees and a limited range of drinks and snacks from the event bar in the foyer. I do hope you find this new What’s on Guide useful, if you have any suggestions on how it can be improved do not hesitate to get in touch. Enjoy

Avengers: Infinity War (12A)

ShetlandMade 

a showcase of contemporary applied art & craft from Shetland Bonhoga is celebrating craft and its role in Shetland’s culture and economy with a programme of three showcase exhibitions featuring some of Shetland’s most popular and talented practitioners. Each showcase will feature six local artists, designers and makers, and will include new work, current ranges and one off larger pieces. It is a unique opportunity for visitors to engage with craft and learn what inspires our local designers and makers. It is also an opportunity to purchase from a large and diverse collection of high quality craft. For the duration of the showcase we will feature one maker per week on our website and social media channels. This feature will complement the showcase and provide further details on the maker and their practice. We are very excited about this opportunity for Shetland makers. We recognise Craft as an art form, as well as a growing creative industry, and our artists, designers and makers play a key role in the local creative community. With an increase in demand for local work, we are keen to increase our support of this sector by establishing a retail and exhibition platform for craft at Bonhoga.

Processions Workshop 1 By Christina Inkster For the first banner-making workshop we had an intimate group of 5, including myself. We began the session by talking about the Suffragette movement; putting our feet in the shoes of these women. This gave us perspective on the then and the now, reflecting and comparing similarities and differences, and highlighting factors important to the individual women and those that applied to the group as a whole:

“Having a voice: to be heard.” Conversation then navigated towards the personal; what does it mean to be a woman? What does it mean to be a woman within Shetland? This brought up conflicting contrasts between: the real and the expected (what may be expected of us as women versus what we may expect for ourselves); community and isolation (the power of belonging to a community versus the power of being isolated from a community); strength and vulnerability (conflicting states of being depending on circumstance; the “ebb and flow” of life). This poetic sentiment of “ebb and flow” spoke true within the group. There is an “ebb and flow” with life as there is with the island as its own being. We respond to its motions and react accordingly:

“There is something about our island; it is within me as I am within it.” Originally published on the Shetland Arts Blog, 29 March 2018.

Review: Student Night

By Peter Tomlinson (For a full version of this review, visit shetlandarts.org/blog)

Mareel hosted the second Student Night of the academic year on Thursday night. Nine music students of different levels performed a set, displaying a massive range of genres, styles and instruments. First up was Callum McLeaskintosh. Playing two original songs, he showed his versatility with a soft melodic tune followed by Grandma’s Gobsmacked, a much rougher and harder song. Lewis Hall had the next set and covered Def Leppard and Danzig songs to an impressed audience. Joined by Ian Priest, Scott Priest and Ewan Moncrieff, their stage presence was as exciting as their song choice.

Amy Gear & 300 artists from 5 Shetland Schools:

Unexpected Sites  Unexpected Sites is the third project in a four-year gallery education programme supported by Children & the Arts as part of their Start Programme, delivered by Shetland Arts in partnership with SIC Creative Links. The project involves five target schools in Shetland: Sandwick JH School, Aith JH School (including Skeld Primary), Fetlar Primary School, Brae JH School and Whalsay School, working with a total of c.300 pupils from 5-14 years of age. Amy Gear has been working with pupils from each school to explore their surroundings in two and three dimensions, mapping journeys and unexpected sites along the way. Opening Event: Wednesday 23 May, 6 - 7.30pm  Free Beyond Bonhoga is a programme of visual art exhibitions in new and exciting locations around Shetland.

A big change in styles came next, with Natalie Cairns-Ratter wowing the violin fans in the room with her version of the first part of Romantic Pieces by composer Antonin Dvorak. Zdenka Mlynarikova overlapped sets with Natalie, playing Always on My Mind with her. Zdenka then played an original about her love for music called Strings and Soul. Along with Brydon Sales, David Mainland and Leah Setrice, Scott Priest opened his set with Californication. For the next segment of Scott’s set, he was joined by Josh Smith, Lewis Hall, David Mainland and Brydon Sales. Singer Leah Setrice then performed three songs packed with attitude. A highlight was when she was joined by Brydon Sales, Scott Priest and Ewan Moncrieff for an original called Cheater. Brydon, Scott and Ewan stayed on stage afterwards for Brydon’s set. Playing Iron Clad Lou, they mesmerised the spectators before hitting them with a heavy breakdown. The night wound up with a set from guitarist Ewan Moncrieff who played two songs. One of the standout performances of the night was when he was joined by Ian Priest, Brydon Sales, Scott Priest and Lewis Hall for a rendition of Pearl Jam’s Jeremy. The live scene is in safe hands with this generation and the huge mix of genres and styles suggests a phenomenal range of music will remain available for the foreseeable future.

Fred MacAulay: 30 Years On In 1998, Fred MacAulay made his stand up debut at Mayfest’s “So you think you’re funny” competition in Glasgow with five minutes of his own comedy material. Much of what Fred talked about that night was about his family, coupled with wry observations about society and politics - themes which Fred’s fans will be familiar with. His observations have led him to success on television and radio, on the live circuit and comedy festivals worldwide.

Trio HLK  Trio HLK is the union of three distinct, forward thinking musical personalities. A belief in the high art of improvisation and intrigue with the infinite art and science of rhythm is what brings H, L and K together. Together they address ambitious improvisational frameworks which often resemble contemporary classical music more than jazz. Their music features dense, complex rhythms and textures, and virtuosic improvisation. Trio HLK’s music sounds genuinely fresh, and genuinely new.

I’m With Her 

Screenplay 2018 

An impromptu show in 2014 at the Sheridan Opera House in Telluride, CO, sparked the formation of I’m With Her and sent the trio touring the world together the next year. Along the way, I’m With Her formed a special, family-like chemistry, garnering acclaim for their unique blend of instrumental interplay combined with their indelible harmonies, as the New York Times describes, “... that could be sweetly ethereal, or as tightly in tandem as country sibling teams like the Everly Brothers, or as hearty as mountain gospel.” Their debut album, See You Around, was recorded in Box, England, with Ethan Johns at Real World Studios.

Shetland’s annual film festival is curated by celebrated film historian Linda Ruth Williams and film critic Mark Kermode, alongside our own Kathy Hubbard. It features a feast of film screenings, lectures and panel discussions involving national and international film industry professionals and film academics. Screenplay also has a strong local flavour, provided by the work of local film makers of all ages, and an outreach programme taking in community halls and education.
