Inspired by ancient keening rituals, Move~Gluasad is a multi-story performance about migration, loss and the common human experience of grief. Weaving together multi-lingual storytelling, choral soundscape and Gaelic song, five women build a picture of the ebb and flow of people across the globe through the ages. 

Incorporating musical styles as diverse as Gaelic psalm singing, Swahilli lullabies, Epirus Polyphony and Canntearchd Move~Gluasad celebrates humanity and mourns a loss of kinship across cultures. Move~Gluasad is written, directed and performed by Julia Taudevin with a cast that includes Mairi Morrison, Nerea Bello and Beldina Odenyo.

Move~Gluasad is the first production by Disaster Plan, a new company led by award-winning theatre makers Julia Taudevin and Kieran Hurley whose previous collaborations include Beats, Chalk Farm, Rantin, Heads Up, and Blow Off. 

All audience members are invited to an optional pre-show singing workshop where the cast will teach some of the songs and singing techniques used in the show.

“The writing is brilliant, sharp, poetic, passionate, full of searing insight” – The Scotsman on Chalk Farm * * * *

“has the concentrated power of a Greek tragedy… in exhilarating musical form” – The Guardian on Blow Off * * * *
