"You can't stop birds flying over your head, but you can definitely prevent them from building a nest in your hair"

The children Christina Liddell works with at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh are remarkable; they are unsung heroes, triumphing daily over adversities life has thrown. Glimpsing Air Pockets is a multi-sensory dance theatre production, which expresses the profound impact these children have had on Christina’s life. 

This creative collaboration with children and young people from the hospital brings to life their very own creative contributions, to be seen and experienced by the immersive audience throughout the set, visual, soundscape and interactive design within the performance. 

Featuring a young performer from the hospital, this show is a beautiful and moving experience - May you catch even a glimpse of the hope, blessing and inspiration they offer to us all.
