Humans have always looked to the birds. In mythology, they are carriers of souls, messengers to the gods, our familiars. In ecology, they are our measure, our meter, they mark the seasons. This new work incorporates birdsong, vocal and instrumental mimesis and new lyrical material as well as a lush visual skyscape of flocks, skeins and murmurations. The work explores themes of migration and movements of birds and humans, resulting in a powerful and resonating new work.
Devised by Jenny Sturgeon and Inge Thomson. Featuring Sarah Hayes (Admiral Fallow) and Jason Singh (Follow The Fleet). Co-commissioned by the Barn.
