Inspired by the Greek legend of Icarus, this is the story of a girl who doesn’t fit in; a girl who’s learning to fly. Washed up on a tiny island, she studies the birds, her only companions and begins to work out her escape.
They said she would never do it. Impossible. But, with these unfolding wings, they had fallen silent and watched her go until she was just a speck on the horizon. She was at one with the wind. This was what it was to be free. To soar. She soared up … up … and away … and the world below got smaller and smaller.
The award-winning Barrowland Ballet use intricate choreography, wit and humour to tell this evocative new story.
