CELTIC CONNECTIONS : Karine Polwart - "Insight into the Making of Wind Resistance"

CCA, 350, Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow

In her theatre piece Wind Resistance (in collaboration with The Royal Lyceum in Edinburgh), and her companion album A Pocket of Wind Resistance (with Pippa Murphy), Karine weaves traditional and original song into an arc of story, and a poetic essay on sanctuary, healing and solidarity.

In this workshop, Karine offers an insider's view of the process of making the show. She reflects on how collaborators with skills in dramaturgy, direction, movement, sound design and visuals helped create the whole. She talks about the resonance of the songs in the context of a thematic piece, and shares also some of the songs and poems that helped shape the work, but didn't make the final cut.
