Julia Taudevin

Presented by Disaster Plan
In association with Slung Low and the Traverse Theatre

Inspired by ancient keening rituals, Move is about migration, loss and communal healing. Weaving storytelling, choral soundscape and Gaelic song, five women portray the ebb and flow of people across the globe throughout the ages.

The inaugural show from Disaster Plan – a new company from the team behind Blow OffBeats and Heads Up – Move is staged in a unique open-air performance at Edinburgh’s Silverknowes Beach. The performance will also be available online, on-demand later in August in a version adapted, especially for online audiences. 

Please note:
In person performances take place at Silverknowes Beach, Edinburgh.
