Scots in the Antarctic: A Tale with Penguins, Pipers and a Dog named Russ
by Nicola Wright
Join storyteller Nicola Wright on a journey to the end of the earth to hear of the hugely successful, but now almost forgotten, Scottish National Antarctic Expedition 1902-1904. In this entertaining family-friendly performance you will meet William Speirs Bruce, a polar hero you may never have heard of. You will learn about what explorers ate, how they lived and what they wore. Are you ready to discover the story of the Saltire at the South Pole?
Written and Performed by Nicola Wright. Filmed at the Scottish Storytelling Centre. Suitable for all the family.
Part of the Voyage series - A Nation Shaped by the Sea
Over centuries, real and imaginary voyages have connected Scotland to other coastal countries, near and far. Some of the story treasures that arrived and departed with them are now presented in this special series of traditional storytelling events celebrating Scotland as a nation shaped by the sea. Specially developed for the SISF 2020 by Scottish based storytellers and musicians, the performances are presented as live from the Netherbow Theatre, at the Scottish Storytelling Centre or on location where the stories are set. Experience some of Scotland’s best storytellers and musicians in the flow as they shape these incredible tales.
