And here's a chance to listen to a preview track from the album:

LABOURING & RESTING

In September, the geese snake in across The Firth of Forth from their summer nests in Iceland and the coastal cliffs of Greenland, clattering and honking in their every shifting skeins. The outstretched wingtips of each migrating goose create an upwash, a pocket of wind resistance for the bird tucked in behind and below. These neuks of ease, these aerodynamic sanctuaries, cut the drag by up to 65%. It’s a wonder, and it’s also a gale-bitten struggle to maintain cooperation. Every goose takes a turn: 

stepping up
falling back
labouring 
and resting

 

 

 


 

WIND RESISTANCE : THEATRE DATES

 

Next month, I’m taking the stage show to both Belfast International Festival and Dublin Theatre Festival, ahead of a (slightly terrifying, as well as exciting) main house run at The Royal Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh. This is quite a step up in scale from the Lyceum’s intimate studio theatre where the piece first took flight last year. So please do tell your pals all about it!
