An interactive video installation work combining striking imagery and choreography capturing Barrowland Ballet’s Artistic Director, Natasha Gilmore and her three children in an intimate portrayal of family life.

Surrounded by four screens and seated on swivelling stools,  join a family on an immersive geographical and emotional journey across stunning Scottish landscapes through choreographed sequences and candid ‘off camera’ moments.

With space to roam, the children encounter rabbit skulls, converse with spiders, make war paint with berries and discover the fun of burying their mum in bark.

A celebration of getting out into nature, Family Portrait is an honest depiction of what family is – responsibility, relentless and glorious chaos, balance, intimacy and, most of all, love.
