1983: A salon in a mall in a dying city is the hub of an isolated sub-culture obsessed with consumerist “new age” spirituality. A stylist, inspired by Wham!, European flare, and a VHS copy of Ali McGraw’s “yoga: mind & body”, inspires trainees and clients alike to explore and express their true selves.

Part of the SummerWorks Lab programming – a place for exploration, experimentation, and process. In the Lab, you can experience new works in development from artists exploring new possibilities in performance.

Birdtown and Swanville Written and Directed by Aurora Stewart de Peña; Produced by Mark Aikman; Performed by Rebecca Applebaum, Andy Cheng, William Ellis and Naomi Skwarna; Sound Design by Andrew Zukerman; Scenography by Gustavo Cerquera Benjumea
