Strangebird Zirkus are one of Scotland's leading contemporary circus companies. Specialising in aerial work, Chinese pole and floor acrobatics Lucy Deacon and Moritz Linkmann, both internationally trained, now work from an Edinburgh base. Their work is a fusion of high level dynamic circus tricks with a theatrical narrative. ORNITHOLOGY plays around the chance encounter of two eccentric characters, a male and a female. ORNITHOLOGY is a heady, powerful cocktail of absurd comedy, Chinese pole and floor acrobatics spiked with an exposing insight into human behaviour. The show uses silent disco technology to offer two contrasting soundtracks for the audience. Age 8+Performers Lucy Deacon, Moritz Linkmann.
