Program 1 (March 7-10): something we made together
Conference of the Birds--a journey inward, outward, upward, onward
derived from the mystic poet Attar’s beloved parable of spiritual transformation--or liberation philosophy. The birds of the world set out in search of a king; what they find is something much better than they expected.

and an excerpt from the forthcoming full length aerial play
THE UNFOLDING SKY
Created and Directed by Scott Combs, assisted by Wendy Louie, with choreography developed by the cast: Wendy Louie, Harlan Mackey, Kira Fath, and Medea by Night.
The full piece follows the experiences of Daniel Paul Schreber in a mental hospital in Dresden, Germany at the turn of the 20th century. Schreber wrote a memoir of what he described as divine visions--people momentarily inhabited by errant souls, and birds speaking to him from god. A former judge, Schreber wrote of his treatment to appeal the institutionalization of people against their will. This evening's scenes depict his early encounters with his friendly beaked orators.
A journey through a shadowed landscape. A ritual for finding light in the darkness. A walking meditation as night comes on. A collective refusal to give up or give in. An exploration in aerial, dance and film.
Presented through the Artist in Residency program at The Muse, October 6-7, 2018

We produce every play on the assumption that it will still be unfinished when it appears on the stage. We do this consciously because we realize that the crucial revision of a production is that which is made by the spectator.
