Production Details / Press Releases

A bird on my fingertips, you see the bird, it flies Full of wonder and bliss.
A bird, you see the bird, it flies
Full of wonder and bliss.

My fingertips are a bird that flies, you see Full of wonder and bliss
My fingertips, you see, they fly
Full of wonder and bliss
You fly.

Gestures filled with an evident meaning and emotion is revisited such that new narratives can reveal themselves and meaning-making can become a collective action transporting us to another land full of wonder and bliss.
