Family Portrait

Barrowland Ballet (UK)

Family Portrait is an interactive video installation combining striking imagery and choreography to capture an intimate portrayal of family life. With space to roam, the 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.
