“‘A poignant, unflinching and show about healing, protection, the fragility of human life and the world around us. Its music will resonate for a long time.’”
- Daily Telegraph
“‘unlike anything else I’ve read or heard this year: a new form or forms altogether, really, for it exists as an “immersive musical essay” published by Faber Drama; an album of songs called A Pocket of Wind Resistance with Pippa Murphy; and, formerly, a solo stage show at the Lyceum theatre in Edinburgh. Its subjects include motherhood, geese, moorland, gneiss, migration and deep time, and it manages to make a politics of protest out of its phenomena, as well as a poetics of beauty. It’s extraordinary work.’”
- Robert Macfarlane, Guardian Best Books 2017
