Egg Noir is an object theater piece theorizing about the course of human vision. A scientist who breeds egg heads, a machine who processes them into eye balls, and a poet in the desert who records the eye's vision, are locked into a routine that produces a healthy eyeball. One day a bad egg infiltrates this world and threatens to destroy it.
Spybird Theater was founded in 2001 with the creation of Sensational Prodigies! a toy theater show about the life of midget Tom Thumb who became famous under the guidance of PT Barnum. This show was developed and performed on the road while traveling throughout the United States. In the following years we made Egg Noir, a solo object theater piece about an ailing system of communication, which played in Vermont, Chicago, and Mexico. Our newest show Eye of the Storm is a bizarre fairy tale about the difficulties of trying to stay connected to the world and facing a set of obnoxious neighbors.
