About the show:
Northern Flyway is a brand new music and visual creation by Inge Thomson and Jenny Sturgeon, exploring the ecology, folklore, symbolism and mythology of birds and birdsong.
Also featuring singer/multi-instrumentalist Sarah Hayes (Admiral Fallow) and the phenomenal vocal sculptor Jason Singh, it draws on such sources as the extensive field recordings of musician/composer and birdsong expert Magnus Robb, Sturgeon’s background as a biologist and Thomson’s home turf of Fair Isle, combining vocal and instrumental composition, sonic experimentation and lush, evocative visuals. Themes of human and avian migration, the seasons’ cycle and humanity’s relationship with nature also resonate through this multi-dimensional, magically immersive experience. Northern Flyway is set against a landscape of bird images, creating an intense visceral, audio-visual experience.
Set design and lighting by Simon Gane, projection mapping by Ben Everett.
