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.
