Solway to Svalbard
An immersive, multi-artform response to the spring migration of barnacle geese.
Created by composer Stuart Macpherson, filmmaker Emma Dove and sound recordist Pete Smith, this unique piece of theatre brings together original music with cinematic visuals, evocative soundscapes and live storytelling.
From their wintering site on the wetlands of the Solway Firth, through staging sites in Norway, to their breeding grounds in the High Arctic, the barnacle geese journey across shifting environments in search of food and safety. A team of three clunky humans follow in their flight path, encountering different communities along the way, seeking answers to their own questions of home and resources.
