Check out a wee clip from our performance of Hanna Tuulikki’s Away with the Birds on the stunning Isle of Canna last August (about 14 mins in).
Hanna Tuulikki‘s evocative vocal score took flight on the absolutely STUNNING Isle of Canna, Scotland in a large-scale site-specific event. If you have never been to Canna – GO!
After extensive rehearsals at the Pearce Institute in Govan, we rehearsed on Canna for a week before a weekend of performances at the end of August. Read, see and hear more on Facebook and on Hanna’s Away with the Birds website.
Details are up for the forthcoming performances of Away with the Birds (created by Hanna Tuulikki, produced by Suzy Glass, part of Culture 2014) on Isle of Canna at the end of August – info and tickets are available at the website. Also, the Away with the Birds Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign is seeking additional funds for some of the site-specific logistical stuff – rewards and other info can be found here!
Following on from the Tramway performance of Hanna Tuulikki’s Away with the Birds – a project exploring the mimesis of birds in Gaelic song – we’re rehearsing the 9-voice version for the forthcomingTectonics Festival.
