The Birds

A rare set of exotic birds have escaped captivity and have taken a liking to the local habitat. The “Rubious Harmonious” has unmistakable plumage, a surprisingly trusting disposition and a repertoire of bird song not to be missed!

The show was developed from the idea of an unusual puppet flash mob; a singing ensemble that can infiltrate any location and begin to sing at any moment. The Birds lend themselves to being ‘naturally’ present in the environment; they are mobile and are able to interact with the public individually, but can also come together to give intimate performances to small crowds.

The original music written for The Birds was created by Campbell Innes and is based on collected samples of actual bird song.
