Next week, Birdsong Nature Center is holding a performance installation featuring 200 handcrafted lanterns and choreography inspired by the plant and bird life. Illuminating Site: Birdsong Window Gardens, a performance installation by Callous Physical Theatre will take place Saturday, May 4, 8 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.
Joséphine A. Garibaldi and Paul Zmolek have gathered, pressed and dried local flora over the past year to create the unique lantern artworks. Lanterns also feature images of feathers from birds that frequent Birdsong Nature Center.
Performances by Bridget Close, Aaron Ellis, Calypso Haddad and Aigars Larionovs will be featured throughout the exhibit. This evening of art and nature provides a rare opportunity to explore the gardens behind the Birdsong Bird Window that are usually reserved just for feeding avian visitors.
Performances are ongoing and visitors are welcome to explore the exhibit at their leisure. The performance installation is free with Birdsong Nature Center admission, $5 per person, or annual membership, $30 individual/$45 family. Birdsong is located in south Grady County, 2106 Meridian Rd, Thomasville.
The evening of art and nature is made possible in part by the generous support of Birdsong Nature Center and Florida State University’s Facility for Arts Research, School of Dance, College of Fine Arts and Council on Research and Creative Activity.
