A raw howl of grief and an act of protest for what has already been lost and what could follow. MAIM is a love song to the land and language of Mull, a burst of panic in the face of extinction, because the time to take action is running out.

This unique collaboration between Scotland’s award-winning Gaelic theatre company Theatre Gu Leòr and the hugely successful contemporary Gaelic band WHYTE was inspired by their latest album Tairm and combines movement, live music, spoken word, with integrated BSL throughout. MAIM is also fully accessible to non-Gaelic speakers.

MAIM is a call to action, giving voice to the frustrations of the next generation who care deeply about the crisis facing ar tìr agus ar teanga - our land and language. Across the length and breadth of Scotland, place names created and used in Gaelic-speaking communities are being forgotten and their meanings lost, as land mismanagement, non-native tree planting and the effects of climate change threaten to drown the land and language.

“Dar a thig an t-uisge gu grad, dè chailleas sinn? / When the water comes suddenly, what do we lose?”

This show is taking part in our £1 Tickets project.

Supported by Creative Scotland and Bòrd na Gàidhlig.
