Created as a response to growing levels of anxiety found in teenagers across Scotland, audiences were rapt by stunning aerial performance and playful use of mirrors as a spoken and sung soundscape guided them around Craigmount High School for Like Flying.

Created by Nic Green, Like Flying features young people from the school community and has been produced in partnership with the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH), in association with East Ayrshire Council and Edinburgh City Council.

Supported by Aberdeen Standard Investments.
