Companies take Flight to Salford

Published: 12 January 2019

Theatre companies Extant and Yellow Earth have joined forces to present an ambitious new play Flight Paths coming to The Lowry in Salford on February 13.

It features four blind performers and is inspired by the tradition of the Japanese Goze—where blind female performers travelled around medieval Japan making a living from telling epic tales.

Moving between tradition and modernity Flight Paths weaves together personal stories of themselves as artists from Japan, Nigeria, USA and Australia—a multimedia, story-telling circus production that combines aerial, music, narrative and creative audio description that uses new sound technology.
