Wild Geese (2004/2006)

Wild Geese is a song and video ballad of exile and migration, using live music and video to combine the stories of Irish nurses, Asian textile workers, Iranian refugees and Chinese cockle-pickers and to highlight the contradictions in the position of migrant workers, often trapped in some of the poorest jobs, which no-one else will do, but vilified in parts of the media.

Wild Geese has been supported by Arts Council England, Birmingham City Council, Birmingham Community Empowerment Network, Comic Relief, the European Social Fund (Equal Programme) and the Sir Barry Jackson Trust.

Music, songs and actuality from the Wild Geese production are included in the Wild Geese CD available from the Banner office (click here for details).
