The life and death of BIRD. Human flesh is transmuted into the form of a bird as vocalisations and birdsong are electronically transformed. The birds’ natural world is brought into the theatre, creating a post-shamanic work uniting comedy, ritual, and song.
As the performer is changed through transcendental (voice) techniques, in a quest for birdhood, they use the time they have left to explore the space left by the absent dead.
Additional content for the broadcast:
The company will give a live introduction to the interactive broadcast of their opera, and take questions from the audience in a chat after the performance.
Live Broadcast: Wednesday 16th September - 8:00pm
Duration: 1 hour
