Little Bird by Nicole Oglesby
Little Bird tells a haunting, feverish tale of two young girls living on a bayou in east Texas. As they grow, they become aware of the presence of ghosts and the eyes of something dangerous watching them behind looming cypress trees. The story takes place over eight years, focusing in on specific traumas the girls encounter through nightmarish, fantastical montages, and realistic, heartfelt moments. It also incorporates dance, poetic language, and live music. Little Bird explores friendship, trauma, and and the dangers of growing up in a girl’s body.
Little Bird will premiere in June 7 – 9, 14 – 16, 2018 at the Dougherty Arts Center.
Current creative team members include Marian Kansas (Director), Katy Matz (Producer and Dramaturg), and PJ Kelly (Costume Designer).
