The Shelter is an interdisciplinary collaboration combining live drawing in Japanese ink, a multi-voiced verbatim, music and sound performance. Originally developed by Visual Artist Kate Steenhauer and Creative Writer Shane Strachan, supported by Aberdeen Performing Arts and performed at the Lemon Tree in April 2018, The Shelter has been further enhanced with Composer Ross Whyte.
