A grandmother remembers the ocean of her homeland.
A woman runs towards the approaching boats shouting “this way!”
Inspired by ancient keening rituals, MOVE is about migration, loss and communal healing. Weaving storytelling, choral soundscape and Gaelic song, five women portray the ebb and flow of people across the globe throughout the ages.
The inaugural show from Disaster Plan; a new company led by Julia Taudevin & Kieran Hurley, the award-winning team behind Blow Off, Beats, Heads Up and Chalk Farm. Presented in partnership with epic theatre-makers Slung Low and the Traverse Theatre, MOVE is staged in a unique open-air performance at Edinburgh’s Silverknowes Beach.
This performance takes place outdoors, on the beach, where the sand may be damp – please ensure you are wearing suitable clothing and footwear. Please note that wheelchair users will not be required to move over any sandy areas. The performance will be available to stream on-demand from late August.
Location: Silverknowes Beach, Outside Boardwalk Beach Club, EH4 5ES
