    'When Birds Refused to Fly' examines what it is to build up and break down in the name of change.

    Set to the music of Orchestre Super Volta and performed by an ensemble of African artists, 'When Birds Refused to Fly' is a contemporary dance theater project exploring generational transformations, both cultural and geographic.

     

    Choreographer Olivier Tarpaga draws on the 1960s-70s—the post-independence fevers raging across sub-Saharan Africa and the African American fight for civil rights—to examine what it is to build up and break down in the name of change.
