KILN (formerly Kindle Theatre)
A playful and mesmeric exploration of music, voice and cultural identity. Part cabaret, this show examines the lineage of one woman, with live music creating trance-like atmospheres. 'Fox's humour and passion, and Rocha's virtuosity, are unmistakable' (The Guardian).
Europe's northern islands have a timeless, enchanting atmosphere shrouded in mystery, expressed in beautiful poetry and stories. How is this tradition continuing today? Please join us for this very special Trafika Europe launch event with visiting writers from several countries, co-hosted by Edinburgh's own Poet Laureate Ron Butlin!
