Like Flying

‘You haven’t seen a tree until you’ve seen its shadow from the sky’
– Amelia Earhart


Working in partnership, the National Theatre of Scotland and the Scottish Association of Mental Health presents LIKE FLYING. Created in response to the growing levels of anxiety found in teenagers across Scotland, this project invites young people to – through aerial performance methods – learn to fly.

Led by Nic Green LIKE FLYING will create parallel performances with schools in Edinburgh and East Ayrshire, collaborating with 12-16 year olds from a diversity of backgrounds.

To be shared with audiences in June 2019.

Venues and dates to be announced.

Presented by The National Theatre of Scotland in partnership the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH), in association with East Ayrshire Council and Edinburgh City Council
