Wind Resistance @ Perth Theatre

Every autumn, two and a half thousand pink-footed geese fly from Greenland to winter at Fala Flow, a protected peatbog southeast of Edinburgh. From this windy plateau, Karine Polwart surveys the surrounding landscape through history, song, bird-lore and personal memoir. Ideas of sanctuary, maternity, goose skeins, Scottish football legend and medieval medicine all take flight, in this compelling combination of story and song.

The runaway hit of the Edinburgh International Festival 2016, a compelling fable for our modern world, written and performed by Scotland’s leading singer-songwriter Karine Polwart, and directed by Wils Wilson, whose production of The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart was a smash-hit with
Perth audiences, and audiences world-wide, in 2014.

Nominated for Best New Play, Best Production, Best Director and winner of Best Music and Sound at CATS 2017 (Critic’s Awards for Theatre in Scotland).

‘Polwart’s performance is controlled and perfectly in charge of her audience; her delivery, when she
needs it to be, is devastating’ ***** The Stage
‘Wind Resistance is stunning’ ***** The Telegraph
‘mesmerising’ **** What’s On Stage
‘spellbinding’ **** The Scotsman
