Inspired by the Greek legend of Icarus, this is the story of a girl who doesn’t fit in, a girl who’s learning to fly. Washed up on a tiny island, engulfed in rubbish, she studies the birds, her only companions and begins to work out her escape.

They said she would never do it. Impossible. But, with these unfolding wings, they had fallen silent and watched her go until she was just a speck on the horizon. She was at one with the wind. This was what it was to be free. To soar. She soared up … up … and away … and the world below got smaller and smaller.

Learning to fly is about the power of imagination and the sheer determination that lets you fly when forces all around want to pull you down. The award-winning Barrowland Ballet use intricate choreography, wit and humour to tell this evocative new story.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Learning To Fly are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
