The Little Bird Who Stayed For Winter

birdA dance-music circus theatre piece for children and their grown-ups about a little bird in a big city.

A Parisian street artist draws a bird and waits for it to sing.

The little bird hatches from the frame and comes alive, left behind as all her friends migrate for winter.

How will she survive alone in a city?

An uplifting story about making music, finding a friend, and learning how to fly. Inspired by the poetry of Jacques Prévert and his story How To Paint the portrait of a Bird.
