On the Wings of a Godwit
A musical meditation to the ends of the earth and back…
Presented as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival
Multiple dates and times between November 18-29
Suggested Price: $15, tickets available here
‘On the Wings of a Godwit’ is a 20-minute, immersive, online guided meditation of music, birdsong and spoken word that takes the listener on a journey from the continental shores of Australasia to the tundra of Siberia. We invite you, the listener, to become a migratory bird, overwintering between your summer homes, following a flyway path that has been travelled for thousands of years.
Stop, listen, breathe, and take flight on this journey created by renowned Australian artist Kate Gorringe-Smith and award-winning musicians and soundscape designers the Bowerbird Collective, Simone Slattery (violin) and Anthony Albrecht (cello).
