Wind Resistance by Karine Polwart
Having performed sell-out runs at Edinburgh International Festival 2016 and Celtic Connections 2017, Wind Resistance returns to The Lyceum for a limited run, this time on the main stage.
Every autumn, two and a half thousand pink-footed geese fly from
Greenland to winter at Fala Flow, a protected peatbog south-east of
Edinburgh. From this windy plateau, writer and singer Karine
Polwart surveys the surrounding landscape through history, song,
birdlore and personal memoir. Ideas of sanctuary, maternity, goose
skeins, Scottish football legend and medieval medicine all take
flight, in this compelling combination of story and song.
Wind Resistance is co-produced with Karine Polwart and was originally presented in association with Edinburgh International Festival, supported through the Scottish Government's Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund.
