Cuillin Fools brought a variety of entertainment again at this year's Glenelg Music Festival, from walkabout characters to aerial performances (see video in aerial performance page). Workshops and Fire Show!!
This was the first of what we hope will be a long series of Beetroot gigs. Cuillin Fools provided aerial performances and stilt dance characters to complement the bands, and created a visual feast to make this event a truly memorable occasion.
Cuillin Fools created a site specific choreographed aerial dance with the help of Jennifer Patterson and Body Currents.
Four aerialists, three on harnesses and one on silks, performed in one of the most beautiful settings in Scotland, with Eileann Donan Castle as a backdrop.
More than 500 people attended this espectacular event.

Five Cuillin Fools showcase their recent routines with seven performances much enjoyed by the audience.
Poggy and Dunia start the first half of the show with their seductive masked double act dance on trapeze followed by Keri, Jayne and Dunia's singles dance trapeze routines.
Keri and Jayne's double's trapeze performance beautifully expresses the need for friendship in a choreographed dance routine.
Peter's new clowning poi act is a creative combination of the surreal, inventive and funny.
The show closes with a wonderful silks performance incorporating many of Dunia's newly acquired skills from her recent intensive training which is proving to be very fruitful.
What a fabulous event full of promise for the future.
