Harry Josephine Giles: Deep Wheel Orcadia

One of three major performances looking at today’s Scotland, Deep Wheel Orcadia is based on the verse novel by Harry Josephine Giles. A fusion of music, image and performance tells the story of Astrid – who, on return from art school on Mars, meets Darling, a Martian hiding on a space station struggling for survival. Written in Orkney dialect, this spellbinding performance includes English-language subtitles and animated imagery, and is accompanied by a chamber group playing music by BAFTA-winning composer Atzi Muramatsu, commissioned specially for this project.

Supported through the Scottish Government's Festivals Expo Fund and by Sir Ewan and Lady Brown.
