Harry Josephine Giles & Co.
A live jam of sound, visuals and poetry, telling the true story of a military drone’s life and fears. The Drone is part weapons system, part office worker, part tense background hum.
The bleak humour and tender fury of Drone sees the unmanned aerial vehicle as the technology of a neurotic century, surveilled and surveilling, asking how anxious people can live as part of systems of such astonishing destruction.
Written by the Forward-shortlisted poet Harry Josephine Giles and performed by them with international sound artist Neil Simpson (Buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo) and digital artist Jamie Wardrop (Beats, The Dwelling Place), Drone is the spectacular culmination of five years of work.
Directed by Rob Jones (Egg, Super Awesome World), the performance is mixed new every night; a live cabaret band of three artists in three different media.
Drone was first performed at Summerhall at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, was supported for further development by Creative Scotland in winter 2017, and is now touring Scotland in spring-summer 2019, with one London date.
