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 Off, Beats 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.
In person performances take place at Silverknowes Beach, Edinburgh.

“there is the poetry of Taudevin’s text, and the singing and chanting, delivered to the audience perched on rocks around the beach through headphones, and often achieving a thrilling, aching power.”
“Move is masterful in its depiction of motherhood and the experience of migration for women”
“The setting is the star”
