Hailing from Scotland, Strange Bird Zirkus are aerialist Lucy Deacon and Chinese pole artist Moritz Linkmann. Individually they've done a lot of short-format work in the past, including Moritz's excellent cross-dressed Berlin cabaret piece Youkali, but Ornithology is their first full-length show together. Synopsis: 'In a remote tropical place a travelling salesman stumbles across an abandoned estate with a sole untamed inhabitant. His enthusiasm quickly upsets her delicate balance of memory, ritual and hard liquor. Unknown to them, the encounter is being observed, scrutinised, analysed, until the natural order is truly disrupted.'
