On a Wing and a Prayer

State: current


On a Wing and a Prayer is a new two-year project from Nordic Viola taking place in small communities around Scotland. To do something “on a wing and a prayer” means to do something in the hope that you’ll succeed despite being insufficiently prepared” and I’ll be taking this as a starting point for exploring humankind’s approach to the climate crisis.

Going back to Nordic Viola’s roots, I’ll be working with local composers living in habitats under threat.
