Performance: Birdheart

Saturday, May 19, 2018

4–4:45 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Join us for a delightful and intimate performance about transformation, loneliness, and the urge to fly. Birdheart is a theater piece that uses everyday materials—a sheet of brown paper, found objects, light and shadow, and a box of sand—to create a series of images, right before your eyes. Birdheart is magical for all ages, and young people will especially enjoy this special presentation.

Birdheart is a collaboration between Julian Crouch, a theater designer, director, and puppet-maker who has worked on Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Satyagraha, and Shockheaded Peter, and Saskia Lane, a musician and composer who has performed in the band the Lascivious Biddies and with Beyoncé and Kronos Quartet, among others.

Free with Museum general admission, but please RSVP (purchase tickets for David Bowie is separately).

Presented as part of the Onassis Cultural Center New York’s Birds: A Festival Inspired by Aristophanes, which is also a partner on the exhibition David Levine: Some of the People, All of the Time.
