BIRDS (2016)

They live in every corner of the globe

Elegantly simple, surprisingly complex

The most beguiling creatures on Earth

BIRDS

BIRDS is a sung and spoken word composition that observes female rituals and behaviour through the lens of a documentary film narrator. BIRDS debuted at Turner Contemporary and Resort Studios, Margate on 12 March 2016 performed by a group of birds comprising old hens (some broody), young chicks, ugly ducklings and beautiful swans. The birds spoke and sung of flying the coop, feathering their nest, hen-pecking their husbands, having their feathers ruffled and being taken under a wing. Recruited through an open call for singers, the birds were introduced to BIRDS in a workshop on the premiere performance day. BIRDS was commissioned by POW Thanet International Women’s Week and Pie Factory music.
