About Pájaro (Bird)
A whimsical piece in Clown style and no spoken word by recent graduates from Mexico City's National Theater School. In this allegorical tale, two travelers meet on the open road. Inspired by a bird's flight, they attempt to build a flying machine. After their many comical attempts to fly fail, they discover through their imagination that true freedom lies within.
Presented in collaboration with Community League of The Heights & PS4/M The Duke Elllington School.
With special support from
