A Tramway Co-commission as Part of Take Me Somewhere 

On Sunday 2 June there will be a bus running from Tramway to the off-site location in The Cairngorms (Tickets £5, limited places)

Into The Mountain is a new place sensitive performance project by artist and choreographer Simone Kenyon. As part of Take Me Somewhere we are taking a limited number of people in a bus from Tramway to Glenfeshie to experience the performance in the Cairngorms. 

Inspired and informed by the lyrical and embodied prose of Nan Shepherd’s 1974 book, The Living Mountain, the project explores and celebrates women’s relationships with high and wild places (this includes cis women, trans women and intersex women).

It culminates in this site specific performance journey presented within the Cairngorm mountain range for a live audience.

Through working directly within the unique environment of the Cairngorms plateau and with women living within the communities of the National Park, Into The Mountain celebrates women’s encounters with mountainous environments, addressing both historical and current perspectives of gender and access in relationship to the Scottish landscape.

All aspects of the project are informed, created and delivered by women.

This is an off-site performance taking place in a mountainous environment and hill walking is an integral part of the performance. It is not wheelchair or pram accessible. 

It is open to audiences 18+

If you have any suggestions, questions or requirements relating to access for this performance please get in touch via and we will make every effort to support you to attend.


Produced and commissioned by SSW and co-commissioned by CNPA, City Moves, Dance North and Tramway. The project is also supported by Mountainering Scotland, Aberdeenshire Council and Creative Scotland.

Take Me Somewhere is Scotland's newest festival of contemporary performance. Now in its third year, the programme runs from 11 May - 2 June.
