SNACK Recommends – Orbits: Film screening from Birds of Paradise

Where: Fruitmarket, Edinburgh

When: 29th April till 5th May 

Birds of Paradise, Scotland’s leading touring theatre company employing disabled and non-disabled actors, present something a little bit different; a screening of the film Orbits.

Centring on the concept of what happens when we lost something we have been in a relationship with, when we fall out of orbit. Ethereal dancer Diana Niepce embodies, as Direcot Rachel Drazak puts it as the ‘layering of self, of being, of skin’ when one forced to adapt. And who can’t indentify with being off-kilter, falling out of orbit?

They’ll also be hosting a creative movement workshop led by Rachel next Sunday if you fancy engaging with the subject matter in a more intimate, embodied way (no dance experience required). The film is dedicated to the wonderful Pete Edwards who sadly passed in 2022. Orbits being shown for one week only, so get down to the Fruitmarket for a poignant filmic experience.
