We are thrilled about this exciting invitation to present the adorable Aviary (a suite for the bird) in Germany at the esteemed Teo Otto Theatre on 26 September 2014. We are enthused by this invitation to premiere Aviary to European audiences and, importantly, see this tour as a meaningful foundation on which to build our international programming opportunities and relationships.

Aviary premiere at the Melbourne International Arts Festival in 2011 and recently, presented at MONA FOMA in 2012 to critical acclaim. Now after much anticipation we are presented with the opportunity to showcase this incredible collaboration - featuring the work of renowned fashion designer Toni Maticevski, milliner Richard Nylon and the divine dancers - to international audiences.

Aviary is a romantic, exotic and visual art-based contemporary dance performance that pays homage to the spectacle of the bird. Aviary a suite of experimental articulations based on French composer Olivier Messiaen's Catalogue d'Oiseaux, written in the 1950s. These musical scores for the bird are interpreted through classical, modern, and contemporary idioms staged in a flamboyant rethink of paradise.

The suite arrangement implies a non-linkingnarrative structure. The scores are translated into different social, cultural and chronological locations: a contemporary experimental dance improvisation, a 1980's erotic disco floor, and a jungle in New Guinea.

We thank you for your generous donation that will support artist wages for this tour to Germany.
