birds sing a pretty song.





MAY 4 – 7 // 7:30PM 

birds sing a pretty song is a performance piece integrating dance, live music and interactive media, it revolves around two dancers, suspended in an environment where our hyper social nature reaches a point in which the lines of virtual and reality are obscured. The audience follows their wanderings through a world manipulated and influenced by the “curators” (the three live musicians) and projected light structures that move and direct the world onstage. Through the piece they encounter an attempt at a relationship, fleeting glimpses of memory, and a fight for connection. Tied in with sound and video reactive visuals, the audience is engulfed in a world corrupted by narcissism, surveillance and confinement.



The NYC premiere is incubated by a collaboration between LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture and the Chutzpah! festival.

LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture is a program of the 14th Street Y that uses classic Jewish texts to inspire the creation of art, dialogue and study.

The Canadian premiere of birds sing a pretty song is May 13 & 14 as part of the 2017 Chutzpah! Festival at the Norman Rothstein Theatre in Vancouver Canada.
The creation of the World and Canadian premieres of birds sing a pretty song was supported by  two Chutzpah! Festival Creation Residencies in Vancouver and Sointula, BC Canada.
