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.

Scotland Small?, RSA Lower Galleries runs 25 June – 24 July 2022

Volunteers Wanted for Free Yoga Classes!

To support body symphonies teacher training sessions. 

Thank you to all who came the last time, it was fab and we really enjoyed the whole weekend.

I am posting the link again in case you wish to sign up for the next two occasions. One is June 18th-19th, the other is July 2nd and 3rd.  

Format:  June week-end :The trainees will be teaching one class each, all different classes. I am hiding in a corner not to interfere. We have teas, cake and savoury bits for after to thank you .

July week-end: I will be going around adjusting people, to remind them of what we discussed over the 15th month one last time before they set off. Not ideal if you prefer to avoid touch.

If you have any medical condition that requires special attention, I would ask you to please not join the weekends as they are simply for me to assess general level classes. The rest goes under special workshops and trainings one can choose to do to deepen afterwards. Feel free to e-mail me if in doubt.

Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you at Yoga, Collective at studio 6.02.

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!

this is the link to book your space by selecting the dates you wish to come. You just need to bring yourself. 6.02 is as you come out of the lift, turn left, then through the double doors, the door in front of you.

Lunch-time Pop-Up Event (External)

Would you be interested in doing a lunchtime pop-up event in a corporate building?
We’ve got a big lobby space where you could advertise your brand with some promotional materials like flyers etc. or even sell your product on the spot. All that with no cost.

We are based at Atria One, 144 Morrison Street Edinburgh.
Atria One is occupied by 17 large companies. On average we have around 200-400 employees coming in to work from the office each day.

Pop-ups take place in our lobby area.

It is entirely up to yourself how you want to use the space. You can have a banner, promotional materials, product you want to sell etc. From our side, we can provide a table or a few. However, if there is anything in particular you need, just let me know and we can see what are the options for organising it.

In the past, we had businesses like Hot Yoga, Massage and Glow, Candle and co, Wee bee company, Le Petit Cafe, Pure Gym and more.

In November we are planning to host pop-ups on the 17th and in December on the 8th. Let me know if that is suitable.

Ps. Just to remember… to be in the building you will need to have a valid licence or insurance so you are safe 🙂.
