Festival On Tour

c. Jassy Earl

We are delighted to tour Imaginate's new festival commission, Learning to Fly by Barrowland Ballet in venues across Scotland, in the lead up to the Festival. 

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. It is about the power of imagination and the sheer determination that lets you fly when forces all around want to pull you down.

Find out more about the show from the creative team in the short video below.

The Festival on Tour enables Imaginate to reach as many children as possible, including those leaving outside Edinburgh and is supported by the Scottish Government’s Festivals Expo Fund.


To book tickets for the tour, please contact each venue directly.
