He sings in the hands of her old limbs-his orange chest emulates the sun's warmth. Relieved from the chaos she happily roots herself deep
into the Earth. Calls of sirens, drills, and passerby's surround them. They go unnoticed and unheard, but so is the life of birds and trees.
How often is that song drown out by the noise of the city? Nature speaks its own language, but have our busy lives silenced it?
It's time to reacquaint ourselves with Nature's Voice and put Earth in Translation. To listen to the cries from deforestation, animal
displacement, and pollution. Our anthropocentric view has caused a break in communication.
As children of one parent we need to take the time to stop, listen, re-sensitize, and adapt.
--Jeff Burroughs, Artistic Director & Founder

Music videos used to be awesome and even involved the concept of storytelling and served up a little food for thought. We've stripped the video and zeroed in on the music and the story, which is told through choreography. No dialogue, no text, but a message coded in movement with music. One song, one story: Earth Movements.

The Birds is set in a landfill/crow's nest, and inhabited by half-puppet half-man trash art creations, our protagonist's seeks fortune with a plan that hinges on Man's "out of sight out of mind," mentality. The old adage, "one man's trash is another man's treasure," rings true and he prevails by defeating his enemies with their own greed.
