Every autumn, two and a half thousand pink-footed geese fly from Greenland to winter at Fala Flow, a protected peat  bog south-east 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.

Karine Polwart is a multi-award-winning Scottish songwriter and musician, as well as a theatre maker, storyteller, spoken word performer and published essayist. She is also a four-time winner of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Wind Resistance was awarded the Best Music and Sound Award at the Critic’s Awards for Theatre in Scotland 2017.

Presented by Pavilion Theatre in association with Dublin Theatre Festival.
