And the Birds Did Sing

About And the Birds Did Sing

This is about living but it began with a death. This is about existing and not existing, and a child's heart-bursting belief that there is something in between. This is about love. A woman remembers a girl who knew a woman who listened to the birds. Inspired by the depth of feeling in one tiny moment of knowing that the world will never be the same again, this evocative solo work, a collaboration between choreographer Christine Devaney, musician Luke Sutherland and artist Yvonne Buskie, explores the interplay between music, dance and the origins of stories.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for And the Birds Did Sing are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
