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

With humour and candour, the work shares an honest depiction of what family really is - responsibility, joy, balance, intimacy and, most of all, love.

Filmed in the splendour of Scotland’s natural environment.

The film will be experienced on multiple screens by one extended family bubble at a time. When booking tickets, please just select 1 - this will be valid for the whole family bubble.
