This Saturday @brooklynmuseum: Experience Birdheart, 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.

Presented as part of the Onassis Cultural Center NY’s “Birds: A Festival Inspired by Aristophanes.” More in bio link.
