"For the Birds" will integrate cutting edge live bird handling with stunning video, live music and abstract geometric puppetry. For the Birds is a visual symphony designed for the Flight Zone Theatre and is aimed towards inspiring respect for nature through the beauty of birds. It will bring forth an appreciation for these living creatures through the transformation of our visual perception of them during a live choreography.

In For the Birds, the birds will become part of the creative process. Traditionally the subjects during the live bird show, the birds will have the control to subject the human audience to a bird’s point of view. They will conduct our the live music and oversee our stage during the performance. This shift alters our perspective as humans, highlights the surreal environment and sets the human performers on level footing with their avian counterparts.
