Martin Green (Lau) with Adrian Utley (Portishead) / Dominic Aitchison (Mogwai) / Becky Unthank / Adam Holmes / White Robot
Featuring some of today’s most influential musicians, this intimate, visually rich production explores themes of migration through darkly atmospheric songs and breathtaking stop-motion animation.
Award-winning composer and Lau’s visionary accordionist Martin Green brings together members of Portishead, Mogwai and The Unthanks with BAFTA-winning animators White Robot (Will Anderson and Ainslie Henderson) for this extraordinary new show.
Flit is inspired by first-hand stories of human migration, some heart-warming, others heartbreaking and features songs and original music by Green with lyrics from Karine Polwart, Anaïs Mitchell, Sandy Wright and Aidan Moffat.
Set within a captivating animated world, these exquisite songs are performed live by a world class band fronted by the inimitable voices of Becky Unthank and Adam Holmes.
