About the event

This is about living but it began with a death.

This is about existing and not existing, and a child’s heart-bursting belief that there is something in between.

This is about love.

CURIOUS SEED presents And the Birds Did Sing.  Blending contemporary dance and storytelling, And the Birds Did Sing is an intimate solo dance theatre work, performed with an evocative soundtrack, poetic text and ethereal set design. Loosely structured around creator and performer Christine Devaney's childhood memories, made in collaboration with musician Luke Sutherland and artist Yvonne Buskie, this work leads the audience on a poignant journey.

Personal in tone, And the Birds Did Sing speaks to universal human themes such as growing up, life and death, the passing of time and love. Holding a delicate balance between sadness and joy, this solo incorporates dance, spoken word, visuals, and music, with humour and tenderness.

The work won a Herald Angel Award at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and was runner up for the Scottish Arts Award.

The performance will be followed by Staying On, Curious Seed's invited artists programme.
