Bird Lady by Rebecca Salzer Dance Theater

Bird Lady: Rebecca Salzer Dance Theatre


Bird Lady is inspired by the life and photographs of Vivian Maier – a Chicago nanny whose prodigious body of street photography has brought her posthumous fame. The discovery and dissemination of this private artist’s work, plus her penetrating portraits of unsuspecting street-goers raise ethical and artistic questions. Dance artists Liz Burritt, Kristina Fluty, and Rebecca Salzer join forces with opera director Kristine McIntyre, composer AlexTemple, videographer Anna Ryndova, and designers Alina Bokovikova and Aaron Sherkow for a cross-disciplinary evening of dance, theatre, music and video.
