Orcadia: A Fenris and Ragnar Story

We (Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn) will be presenting two events to accompany our work in the exhibition Scotland Small? at the Royal Scottish Academy in two weeks. Here is some information about the events:  

Orcadia: A Fenris and Ragnar Story  
Film screening & Q&A  
Saturday 2 July 2022 
Hawthornden Lecture Theatre | Royal Scottish Academy  
Free | Registration required 
2 – 3pm  

 

Orcadia: A Fenris and Ragnar Story is a short documentary film by Scottish filmmaker Glen Thomson. The film follows artists James Alexander McKenzie and Daniel O’Dempsey as they navigate life on the Orcadian Isles and chronicles their immersion in its rich culture. They discuss the impact Orkney has had on them, and the philosophy behind Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn. Orcadia documents McKenzie and O’Dempsey’s collaborative practice, and the first two acts of the experimental play that they developed during their residency.  

Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn: Act 4  
Live Performance  
Sunday 3 July  
RSA Lower Galleries  
Free | Registration required  
1 – 1:30pm 

Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn will employ their body of work exhibited in Scotland Small? as props, backdrop, and stage for Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn: Act 4. The fourth act, they describe as “a stage act of performing alter egos and experimental performance.” 

Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn is an artist collective consisting of James Alexander McKenzie and Daniel O’Dempsey as abiding contributors and includes anyone that the pair collaborate with when operating as Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn. It is a vehicle for experimentation, collaboration and developing ideas within the realms of fine art, performance art, spoken word, poetry, music, and theatre.

Cancer Research UK Fundraiser – 30 Days of Yoga in June Challenge

There are a lot of people online doing this challenge and I felt I wanted to take part. I have been questioning myself over and over of what sits right since my life is full of change at present.

I would like to offer sessions in person on Mondays and Fridays at Studio 6.02, 12:00 -12:30, any donation to go to the link below. The sessions will be 30 minutes long. Ideal to take a pause, breathe, switch off and go back to create after and still be able to have lunch!

Coco Counselling in Communities Makers Market

We are CoCo Counselling in Communities (www.cocoed.org.uk), a small not-for-profit counselling organisation based in the Southside of Edinburgh. We offer one to one counselling and psychotherapy to all those in the community seeking support for their mental health. Our premise is that all people should have access to affordable counselling within their community, regardless of their ability to pay. In addition to our indoor work, we offer a unique ‘walk and talk’ service for those who seek solace in the outdoors.

On Saturday 28th May we will be holding a Makers Market to raise funds for our much-needed affordable counselling service. The market will consist of around 14 traders, all local makers and artists. In addition, there will be refreshments, music and a silent auction where people can bid for a range of prizes.
