Online Concert event for World Migratory Bird Day May 9 2020
‘Invisible to the naked eye, above the land and oceans of the world, lie some of the planet’s busiest highways…
…Twice a year, these connecting corridors of activity hum to the endless beats of millions of wings as birds commute between their seasonal homes…
…As they fly and land, and then lift into the clouds again, the flocks weave unseen threads that bind them to the world and its myriad inhabitants in diverse and unexpected ways…beyond our sight…beyond our imaginations…’
This 17-minute online performance event, facilitated by the EAAFP and hosted by the Bird Conservation Society of Thailand, is a preview of the Bowerbird Collective’s complete live, multimedia performance piece based on the story of the East Asian-Australasian Flyway. This is a work in development, generously supported by Arts SA, with plans for extensive international touring from 2021 onward.
