Details

Martin Green with Adrian Utley (Portishead), Dominic Aitchison (Mogwai), Becky Unthank (The Unthanks) and Adam Holmes

Some of today’s most influential musicians explore themes of migration through darkly atmospheric songs set within a world of breathtaking stop-motion animation.

Award-winning composer and Lau’s visionary accordionist Martin Green brings together Portishead’s Adrian Utley, Mogwai’s Dominic Aitchison and Becky Unthank from The Unthanks, with BAFTA-winning animators whiterobot (Will Anderson and Ainslie Henderson) for this extraordinary live 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 and a haunting sonic landscape, these exquisite songs are performed by a world class band fronted by the inimitable voices of Becky Unthank and Adam Holmes.
