Birdboy is a tribute to all the weird kids left on the sidelines. Using the metaphor of a bird, and its perceived freedom, the piece burrows inside the chaotic and vivid inner world of someone who doesn’t fit in. Through a child’s eyes and combining dance, sound and objects, Birdboy is a journey through a frenzied and sometimes beautiful landscape of fear, isolation, fantasy and letting go, performed by dancer Kévin Coquelard.
Birdboy is the first work that Emma has made for both young and adult audiences.
