Bluebird (2019) – In One Act
A conceptual space is created in which we are invited to imagine the moment before life is breathed into a being for the first time.
These anatomical bodies of creatures have been evolving through time – with no clear path to guide their development. Their last challenge before stepping through to the world of the living? To learn how to survive.
Bluebird shows the fragility of pure naivety, instinct in these beings brings forth playfulness but also questions the importance and the birthplace of our strongest instinct. As a reminder of their impermanence, the presence of a blue sun – a dazzling energy – lingers above their heads, calling to them.
For Bluebird, the D.N.A. collective has created an immersive experience in which the movements, sounds, senses, emotions and thoughts of our characters will be blurred artistically through the use of dance, electronics, light and fabric. We look to play between these media in the theatre space, as a means of narrating a story within the multidimensional mind and body.
