Eilidh MacAskill has created a live, interactive performance as part of this project as an actual “Conference Call” between 15 of the Commonwealth Birds. You, the audience are invited to take on the role of a bird by wearing a specially-designed costume and playing the call of your bird. Award-winning theatre maker and musician, Greg Sinclair has developed sound and music for the piece and artist Kirsty Roberts has created beautiful costumes for everyone to wear.
Performances will take place in the Glasgow Green Live Zone on July 24th as part of Festival 2014, and then in Edinburgh as part of Edinburgh Art Festival on 6th August, and at Forest Fringe on the weekends of 9th/10th and 16th/17th August. Times are TBC but will be during the daytime.
If you would like The Conference Call of the Birds to come to your venue or festival, please contact Eilidh directly on firstname.lastname@example.org.
