Programme Note

Nunataks are mountains that rise up out of icefields and glaciers. The jagged contours of nunataks contrast sharply with the smooth whiteness that surrounds them.

As the ice melts and the sea rises, these solitary peaks stand as stark reminders of human isolation and vulnerability.
