Alex Rigg Kroovan Wings


Kroovan Wings is an outdoor performance project that uses dance, song, costume and storytelling to discuss what it is to be a tree.Near where Oceanallover has its studio on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park there are two trees, an ash and a sycamore; both trees produce seeds that have wings (Samara fruit). The trees are growing one on either side of the road to St John's Town of Dalry and alongside the Southern Upland Way and on an ancient route of pilgrimage. Both trees are about two hundred and fifty years old and stand alone and together, surrounded by upland grazing. This project is both about and for these trees.
