Macbeth at Dunfermline Abbey


It has been a very busy month and last week was an especially busy week.
I have been helping with a site specific interpretation of Macbeth at Dunfermline Abby for Tina West and her Acting and Performance students from Fife College, creating whirling dervish skirts and photographing the event. I have photographed these students performances many times this year and have loved watching them and their performances evolve.
The production included my daughter who took time out from school to participate and it was great to watch her flourish with her role.
This was was an incredibly moving contemporary production of Macbeth with physical theatre, dance and intense audio which dealt with issues of personal and military conflict, pertinent to our age, set within the fantastic grounds of Dunfermline abbey.
The project was funded by Carnegie Dunfermline Trust and was offered as a free event to schools and the Dunfermline community and supported by Historic Environment Scotland.
