Sofie Livebrant has put passages from Jeanette Wintersons’ novel Lighthousekeeping to music. The novel tells the story of the orphaned girl Silver who grows up at Cape Wrath Lighthouse in northern Scotland with the blind lighthousekeeper Mr Pew. He tells her stories; Tristan and Isolde, Captain Scott…Summer 2015 a concert tour will take place around the North Sea. A group of three musicians and a filmteam will be visiting lighthouses around the North Sea: United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark and Norway, tracing the old sailor paths. A music film will be the outcome, broadcasted Spring 2016 on Swedish Television.
“Tell me a story, Pew! What story child? One that begins again. That’s the story of life. But is it the story of my life? Only if you tell it”
These happenings around the North Sea will include a concert performance – Lighthouse Stories – with Sofie Livebrant, Hal Parfitt-Murray and Lisa Eriksson-Långbacka, but in the second set Lighthouse keepers and audience will be invited to contribute with their local stories and music.
‘I believe that storytelling is a way of navigating our lives. Fact are partial. Fiction is a more complete truth. If we read ourselves as narrative, we can change the story that we are. If we read ourselves as literal and fixed, we find we can change nothing.’ (JW)
See you there? Love SOFIE
