"This is an poignant, unflinching and beautiful show about healing, protection, the fragility of human life and the world around it. Its music will resonate for a long time." The Telegraph
"Whispered through grasses and sphagnum, yet shouted out from the heights of the hills surrounding Edinburgh, musician Karine Polwart's foray into theatre is a thing of beauty and understanding. She has taken a fragile story of love and immense tragedy set in the lonely sky-kissed and unremarkable heather wetland of Fala Moor, and woven from it a piece of theatre that speaks of universal concerns with power and authority." the Stage
An immersive musical essay. A meditation on sanctuary. A moor walker's journal. A personal memoir of maternity. An archeology of flight science and football, medieval medicine and compassion. A wonder tale.
Wind Resistance brings together poetry, song, politics, personal reflection and story in a mesmerising performance by singer-songwriter Karine Polwart.
After a sell-out run at the Edinburgh International Festival 2016, there are plans for further touring in 2017.
