The Air Year is a time of flight, transition and suspension: signatures scribbled on the sky. Bird’s speakers exist in a state of unrest, trapped in a liminal place between take-off and landing, undeniably lost. Love is uncontrollable, joy comes and goes at hurricane speed. They walk to the cliff edge, close their eyes and step out into the air.

Caroline appeared at our 2020 festival at the Saturday Headline event and delivered an excellent workshop. For our 2022 festival, she is our Competition Judge and will host our Competition Winners event at the festival.
