Shakespeare’s most sophisticated political thriller plays out on Skye stages this week when award-winning Glasgow-based physical theatre troupe Company of Wolves performs its ‘outstanding’ version of Julius Caesar, continuing Seall’s 2022 spring programme.

At An Crùbh tonight (Thursday) and then at Dunvegan Hall tomorrow (Friday), five
actors will create a world on the brink of crisis, teeming with crowds and politics: a
wild ride from the streets of Rome to the steps of the capitol, from whispers in the
night to outright war. Both events take place at 7.30pm.

Then on May 10 at 7.30pm, revered Scottish singer-songwriter Jenny Sturgeon brings
The Living Mountain — her solo audio-visual performance — to Waternish Hall.

On May 11 at 11am, Jenny will also lead a song-writing workshop for all levels and experience.

There is also the chance on May 19 to hear the beauty of South Indian melodies blending with electronic sound effects and virtuosic improvisation in a special performance by Justyna Jablonska and Jyotsna Srikanth at An Crùbh, at 7.30pm.

The Scottish Ensemble returns to Skye for 2022 with harpist Ailie Robertson and local musicians to celebrate the stories of Scotland at Dunvegan hall on May 23. The event is accompanied by an exhibition in the hall.

To round-off Seall’s events in May, the popular Glasgow Phoenix Choir makes a
welcome return to Skye with a three-date tour.

The choir is at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig on May 27 at 7.30pm; Dunvegan Hall at 3pm on May 28; and Minginish Hall on May 29 at 3pm.
