From the makers of Big Man Walking comes a folklore giant made-real, to kick off our Coastal Connections: Festival in a Day. Storm lives in the waters around Scotland, and in 2020 she will walk on land to share maritime stories of the sea.

At ten metres tall, her eyes are the colour of oyster shells, her hair thick strands of kelp, her voice the chorus of the waves. Aided by eight puppeteers, Storm will visit the heart of towns and villages across the country, gazing down at the beauty of our coastlines, urging care for the environment every step of the way.

Storm will rise from The Clyde and bring together a tide of people as she makes her way to the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Where will you be when she passes? Gazing from a window, down at the waterside or walking alongside her on the street.

A new feat of mechanical mastery from Edinburgh’s Vision Mechanics, Storm is an outdoor theatrical event to mark Visit Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Water 2020.
