Birdsong of Tomorrow

22 - 24 Aug

A nature documentary for the end of the world.

By Nathan Harrison

Everyday in our gardens and our streets, birds sing. They sing songs passed down through generations, songs of a world that’s gone and a world that’s changing. Birds fill every part of the planet with melody and colour. They soar, swim and run. And a lot of them are chickens.

Birdsong of Tomorrow is a playful and heartfelt look at the birds around us, and what they might sing when we’re gone. A blend of science, storytelling, music and projection from a MERRIGONGX all-star team of Nathan Harrison and Emma McManus (Sorry Sorry Sorry), Tom Hogan (Mount Hopeless) and Solomon Thomas (UFO, COIL).

Spread your wings and hear the world anew.
