Podcast available to stream until 30 June.
Clouds are galleries of constant change. They’re totally international – there are clouds wherever you are in the world. In unprecedented times, with world-changing events crashing into our personal lives, whether there is loneliness, chaos, grief or joy; we all need time to sit and think and contemplate. Gazing on clouds slows us down like a meteorological meditation. Sometimes clouds are the only part of the natural world you can see from your home – the skies are yours and mine, and they are completely free to view.
It’s important that you’re feeling comfortable before you start, ideally you’ll have sunglasses and a comfy place with a good view of the sky. It could be you’re in a back-garden, a park or simply that you can see out of a bedroom window. Just somewhere you are unlikely to be disturbed.
Pop on your headphones and listen to the 20 minute Cloudscapes podcast – made specially for cloudgazing in a time of Covid. Lorna will soothe you with her personal musings on cloud formation interspersed with stories about her relationship with the troposphere and reflections on the journey of a lifetime she took, accompanied by her father.
An enjoyable, uplifting and reflective experience. Even the most seemingly featureless skies provide plentiful material.
We’re delighted to present this piece as part of Blue Sky and Beyond. A moment we can all share and experience during isolation. Get gazing and feel connected.
Gobbledegook Theatre was selected to perform Cloudscapes at the biennial Caravan International Showcase for the best of new English Contemporary Performance work and have performed Cloudscapes throughout the UK.
