Papay Gyro Nights
 
Papay Gyro Nights
Papa Westray, United Kingdom - Scotland
Late February
Description
PAPAY GYRO NIGHTS ART FESTIVAL is an international contemporary art festival (experimental film and video art in connection with visual art, performance, music and architecture) holding place in unique settings of extreme remoteness of the island Papa Westray, and in the time of extreme winter weather conditions. The idea of the festival has originated from the ancient Papay tradition of The Night of The Gyros, which till the beginning of 20s century was celebrated on the island in the first full moon of February. Against as reconstructing what is gone and almost forgotten, the Festival is a reflection on the folktale, the islands landscape and heritage, as well as interpretation of tradition and ritual, through new developments in art, music and architecture.
