WELCOME

Well Summer didn’t last long. The cold nights are drawing in and my poor bonsai tree has had to go back under its grow lamps to survive the darker nights and days. Absolutely ideal weather to be in a lovely warm building watching a film, seeing a concert or show, maybe even taking a class, or simply relaxing with a hot drink and sweet treat looking out over the harbour. We have had an exciting time over the last couple of months, co-presenting an exhibition and poetry reading with Roseanne Watt in Letchworth, launching a slew of new classes in September and presenting Screenplay. We also held our AGM for the financial year 2018/19. During the year we welcomed over 190,000 audience members to events,

screenings and exhibitions. We sold over 71,000 tickets to see a film, over 12,000 tickets to a music event and over 7,000 tickets to attend a drama performance. We turned over £2.4million of which over 60% is generated commercially. We posted an operating surplus of £43,323, our fourth surplus in a row. You would think we would be exhausted, but no . . . . . Our education team has welcomed the 2019/20 cohorts of students to Mareel. From Vocational Pathways in Film and Music for younger students through NCs, HNCs and Degrees our education offer keeps expanding. This year we have launched three new Masters modules across the UHI network and continue to develop and demonstrate how education can be delivered at an exceptionally high level in Shetland to students all over the world. If you fancy relaxing in front of a film or two then October’s film program has something for everyone.

Whether it is Film, Art, Music or the Performing Arts this is your guide to Shetland Arts and its venues. Please be aware that, due to the flexible nature of programming, some details may be subject to change.

Apocalypse Now The Final Cut and Metallica and The San Francisco Symphony are not to be missed cinematic events in my opinion, but we are also showing Abominable and Ugly Dolls if that’s more your cup of tea. The Joker, which took the Golden Lion award at the Venice Film Festival, opens on Friday 18th and I can not wait. I am writing this at our retail space in Sumburgh airport listening to John Goldie and the High plains new album Here and Now. John brings his band north for a special one off show at Mareel on 30 October which will feature the very considerable talents of Seonaid Aitken of Shetland favourites Rose Room. Phew, we might need a break at the end of October . . . .

Wellbeing Arts Sessions (Drop-in) 

Over the course of this year five schools across Shetland (Brae, Aith, Whalsay, Sandwick and Fetlar) have been exploring the theme of COLLECTION & ARCHIVE through the off-site contemporary visual art programme. The project has been built around visits to two exhibitions with workshops from visiting artists and makers. We’ve been thinking about why people collect things, what a collection can teach us, and we’ve been discovering what our friends like to collect at home.

Informal Arts sessions in a low pressure environment and open to all. Sessions follow the model of one hour of arts activity followed by tea, coffee and biscuits for 30 minutes. Sessions are an opportunity to meet new people, learn something new and have fun.

COLD LASAGNE HATE MYSELF 1999 will be in residency in London’s West End for six nights in January before he takes the show the length and breadth of the UK. Here’s what he has to say about it: “One time I bought a lasagne from the supermarket, heated it up in the oven and ate a bit of it and it wasn’t very nice so I put it in the fridge because it felt wrong to dump a whole lasagne in the bin and then later on I ate a spoonful of the cold lasagne because I was drunk and it was absolutely delicious. It was 4am. I then changed the name of a WhatsApp I was a part of to COLD LASAGNE HATE MYSELF 1999 because I had been thinking a lot about how 1999 was the best year of my life and also about how much I hate myself sometimes. The next day I was asked to name my new show. Come along.” Friday 27 September, 7.30pm  Mareel  £20 SOLD OUT

Billy Connolly The Sex Life Of Bandages (Cert TBC)

Hitsville: The Making of Motown (12A)

Hailed as the UK’s most influential comedian of all time, the legendary Billy Connolly is coming to cinemas with this brilliant show from his final stand-up tour.

A fascinating documentary charting the creation and success of the legendary Motown Records, set against the backdrop of the civil rights movement.

Recorded in 2015, during the Australian leg of the tour, this whip-smart routine is a riotous journey filled with outrageous tales and blistering observations of everyday absurdities. Connolly will also muse upon his career, life and legacy in a deeply personal interview filmed exclusively for cinema audiences.

Focusing on the period from the birth of Motown in Detroit in 1958 until its relocation to Los Angeles in the early 1970s, this remarkable story is told through new and exclusive interviews with the label’s visionary founder, Berry Gordy, and many of its superstar artists and creative figures, as well as rare performances and behindthe-scenes footage unearthed from Motown’s vaults and Gordy’s personal archives.

365 Stories and Music   Wordplay 2019 is taking on a slightly different format this year, built around the concert, workshops and installation of 365: Stories and Music, a major new collection of Scottish contemporary literature and music in one interactive sound-art installation, launched at the Edinburgh International Book Festival this year and touring to Mareel in November. 365: Stories and Music brings together the genius of Scottish poet and novelist James Robertson and Scottish fiddler and composer Aidan O’Rourke of Lau. James wrote a short story every day for a year, each story comprising 365 words, this was published in 2014 by Penguin as 365: Stories. Aidan then matched the challenge. He wrote a new tune every day for a year in response to James’s stories. “I loved reading those stories: a daily dose of poetry and wisdom. And I loved the writing. The language is emotional, concise, apposite. Somehow the words and the pacing of the stories felt musical. I was intrigued by the discipline of setting such a quantifiable daily creative ritual. Would the same be possible in music…?” - Aidan O’Rourke Aidan’s response is sparse and emotive contemporary folk music — the fiddle is paired with bold and exploratory harmonies from ECM recording artist Kit Downes on harmonium and piano. This concert features Aidan and Kit performing music from the 365 Project alongside readings from James.

Islesburgh Drama Group:

The Crucible “Until an hour before the Devil fell, God thought him beautiful in Heaven.” - Arthur Miller, The Crucible Arthur Miller’s classic parable of mass hysteria draws a chilling parallel between the Salem witchhunt of 1692 - ‘one of the strangest and most awful chapters in human history’ and the McCarthyism which gripped America in the 1950s. The story of how the small community of Salem is stirred into madness by superstition, paranoia and malice, culminating in a violent climax, is a savage attack on the evils of mindless persecution and the terrifying power of false accusations. In this new interpretation of the play, Islesburgh Drama Group reimagines the town of Salem in a familiar landscape of a small island community in 1600s Scotland and explores how the themes are as relevant today as when the play was written over 60 years ago.

Shetland Rape Crisis presents

Zero Tolerance: Violence Unseen  Zero Tolerance and award-winning photographer Alicia Bruce have worked with groups and individuals affected by men’s violence to create a series of photographs that explore the types of violence against women that remain unseen and unacknowledged by mainstream society. The photographs shine a light on the types of violence against women that still remain unacceptably hidden and better represent the constellation of women’s lived experiences. Over the past decades there have been dramatic changes to public attitudes around some aspects of men’s violence against women. Yet domestic abuse, sexual violence and other forms of violence against women are still prevalent in Scotland today, especially for groups of women who face other forms of discrimination; women with learning disabilities, women in prostitution, lesbian, bisexual and trans (LBT) and black and minority ethnic women.
