Dusky Seaside Sparrow, Cinnamon-coloured Cryptic Tree Hunter, Problematic Flasher, Fire Millipede From Hell…
One human attempts to perform 26,000 other species in the space of an hour. Blending projection design from Limbic Cinema, movement, clowning, poetry, and a stunning soundscape, Vigil is a wildly playful, tragicomic exploration of life in an age of extinction.
All the animal and plant names that appear in the show are named on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of extinct and threatened species. Created by Herald Angel award-winning company Mechanimal, and performed by Tom Bailey, this Edinburgh Fringe hit show is back in town.
Mechanimal is an award-winning performance company from Bristol, led by Tom Bailey. The company explores new narratives of the Anthropocene era. Mechanimal creates and tours work both in the UK and internationally.
Vigil is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.
