The Ornithopter

Thursday 12 April

An inventor dreams of touching the sun, reaching space and landing on the moon. And he’s invented six thousand ways how not to do it. But now he thinks he has found a way that will actually work. Can he escape his dreary life and soar amongst those magnificent men in their flying machines? Is he brave enough to jump? Fly or Fall, there’s only one way to find out. Join us for a breathtaking, 20 minute work-in-progress promenade performance. 


Presented by Tortoise in a Nutshell in association with Edinburgh International Science Festival, Summerhall and Grid Iron. With support from The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the City of Edinburgh Council's Culture Project Fund.
