The Nerdy Birdies – Bird Cabaret

Category: Show Related artist: Pestiferous

Our group of fanatical, dancing birdwatchers draw family audiences into an alternative world of birds with their wondrously silly yet insanely illuminating ‘Bird Cabaret’.

We follow the life of birds, from birth and hatching to dinnertime and the afterlife, through a number of nonsensical dance numbers including; the Flamboyant Flamingo salsa, the Perky Penguin shuffle, a Scavenging Vulture battle and the delectable roast chicken striptease. And have you ever seen a canary do the cancan? Well now you can (can) with the fantastic feathered finale, which wows audiences using the colour yellow and some rather high leg kicks to boot.

We use dance, clowning and the spirit of play in this comic and high-energy street theatre show. The show provides a light-hearted and accessible way for audiences to engage with dance, theatre and comedy whilst connecting with the themes of birds and nature in their local public spaces.
