WIND RESISTANCE
By Karine Polwart
Directed by Wils Wilson

“You know I don’t believe it’s true, that in this world there’s nothing new, for darling you have just begun, rivers flow and rivers run.”

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.

First produced for the 2016 Edinburgh International Festival, Karine Polwart’s exquisite piece of gig theatre has become a favourite with audiences all over the country, winning plaudits, awards and inspiring a record shortlisted for the Scottish Album of the Year. Wind Resistance returns home by popular demand to enchant yet more audiences and satisfy established fans.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Wind Resistance are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
