Do you think a boy bird can sing a girl bird’s song?
A dark fairytale for grown-ups, a song cycle, a thrilling piece of solo performance, Little Bird is a gripping story of how people can transform many times over the course of a lifetime.
Commissioned by State Theatre Company and the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Little Bird looks at the journey of young boy, Wren, from his parents’ isolated cottage all the way to the lights of the big city. Along the way a series of startling transformations occur, blurring the lines of identity, gender and reality as Wren searches for self, for love and for a place to belong.
Little Bird has been created especially for Australian stage legend Paul Capsis by multi-award winning playwright Nicki Bloom (Tender, Land and Sea) and features songs by Cameron Goodall (The Audreys) and Quentin Grant (When The Rain Stops Falling) who collaborated on the Adelaide Cabaret Festival hit, You Me and the Bloody Sea. The production will be set in the fading Victorian grandeur of Her Majesty’s Theatre and promises to be a rich and powerful theatrical experience. It’s sure to be one of the highlights of the 2014 Adelaide Cabaret Festival program.
Drawing upon fable, mythology and song to create a compelling dramatic and musical journey, Little Bird will leave you transported, uplifted and with tears in your eyes.
