Neverbird

Conceived & Designed by Dorothy James

Devised & Puppeteered by Dorothy James & Andy Manjuck

Music & Soundscape by John Glover

Neverbird is a new shadow piece performed by two puppeteers on an overhead projector.  Inspired by J.M. Barrie's Peter and Wendy (and its many adaptations), Neverbird  follows a female-identifying protagonist as she attempts to navigate a world that equates womanhood with motherhood.  

Neverbird  was first presented at Cloud City in December 2018 under the non-title "Untitled #2" as a part of Andie Springer's album release "Dandelion."  It will be having it's next work-in-progress showing at Dixon Place in Spring 2019.
