Group Organisers Jay, Mario and Cat would like to invite you to join them at the Aerie’s final open rehearsal on Sunday 6th March, on Calton Hill (near the cannon) from 2pm to 5pm…
Messengers of hope, we fly and sing to announce the arrival of the Green Man and the May Queen on Calton Hill. Throughout history, birds have been represented as the manifestation of the heaven’s will, as kind messengers, or harbingers of doom. The Aerie will explore this concept by offering to the witnesses a performance that would herald the coming of Summer, and the return of the Green Man.
We are performance group that will focus its efforts into blending the use of noisemakers and dance in order to weave a narrative based on hope and renewal. We will also craft our own wings, and quite possibly masks.
We’re ideally looking for group members with a keen interest in dramatic performance, be it musical or physical. But we’re at heart a very welcoming group and would be quite willing to help train newcomers, especially if they’re enthusiastic and have a good sense of rhythm. We also have room for a couple of helpers; bonus points for you if you know how to build props!
Our regular meetings will be at St Margaret’s House, 151 London Road, Edinburgh (starting on 9th March) from 7pm to 9pm on Wednesdays, and on Calton Hill from 2pm to 5pm on Sundays.
