A live jam of sound, visuals and poetry, telling the story of a military drone’s life and fears. The drone is part weapons system, part office worker, part tense background hum. The bleak humour and tender fury of Drone sees the unmanned aerial vehicle as the technology of a neurotic century, surveilled and surveilling, asking how anxious people can live as part of systems of such astonishing destruction.

Drone is proud to be part of the Made in Scotland showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe, a curated showcase of the best performance from Scotland at the world’s biggest arts festival. As part of Made in Scotland, we’re actively seeking national and international tour dates: get in touch.

Written by the Forward-shortlisted poet Harry Josephine Giles and performed by them with international sound artist Neil Simpson (Buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo) and digital artist Jamie Wardrop (Beats, The Dwelling Place), Drone is the spectacular culimination of five years of work. Directed by Rob Jones, the performance is mixed new every night, the three artists making a live cabaret band for an intense and groundbreaking multimedia poetry show.
