Once there was a boy who wished he was a bird. He wished he could just fly away and be free of all his worries.
Birdboy is a trip inside his head. In his whirring mind, thoughts, worries, fantasies all compete for space in a world where fitting in is hard to do.
Full of fun and sorrow, this kaleidoscopic show, performed by dancer Kévin Coquelard, celebrates the power of imagination and offers a vision of hope and connection.
Led by Irish choreographer and director Emma Martin, United Fall is a dance theatre company whose work often combines dance, live music, theatre and distinct visual universes, always with the raw expression of dance as it's driving force. ‘Birdboy’ (2019) is their first work for young and family audiences.
United Fall is funded by The Arts Council of Ireland
Supported by: VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art, Carlow and ArtLinks
