B I R D S E Y E, conceived & choreographed by Leslie Scott

B I R D S E Y E was developed by Leslie Scott with the design team over a series of months, beginning with the intent of exploring ideas of perspective within a site-specific installation. Through rehearsal and discussion, the piece became a communal gathering of dancers and audience members, sharing celebrations and stories.

Produced within a site-specific installation on the CalArts campus in 2015
