A Man Draws a Bird
April 30 - May 11, 2019
What they survived might kill you.
After a catastrophic impact a man and a woman are trapped in a strange world called The In-Between. Here in the darkness their broken lives are curiously linked to those of a coyote, a bird and an unearthly sage who holds the secret power of taiko. This is a hero’s tale told by driving rhythm and racing pulse. How will they finish the journey? Where will it take them? And when they emerge from this world within, will they remember who they were or recognize who they’ve become?
