Strange strangers. Flyway invites you to join the flock.
Trust your instincts. Channel your vision and take a migratory walk through the city, between the sights and sounds of quiet bird spaces and spectacular scenes.
Flyway is a performative audiovisual tour that immerses audiences in the epic and enchanting journeys of migratory birds. Created responsively in each new location it explores our ecological connections, embedding field research of local birds, people and places into the urban fabric of the performance site.
Wearing headphones and binoculars audiences are enveloped in a sonic landscape and guided on a migratory walk through the city to encounter video artworks and a shifting, cinematic environment. Flyway merges foreground and background and points to our mediated experience of ‘nature’.
Flyway was originally created in partnership with Birdlife Australia and its volunteers. Artist Lz Dunn undertook a month-long field research trip along the coast between Melbourne and Maryborough (QLD) to meet with local birders, visit bird sites and collect field recordings.
