Alkaline Birds




Alkaline Birds exist in a paradise-ruin; a place for those whose tribes have gone extinct. An existential pulse of survival; primal and delicate. Displaced bodies in an ageless arc of time, moving within a dream, hungry, joyful, obscure. Abandoned and unrestrained, two figures play variable roles; traveling in time as adults, infants, animals. A cave of sounds and stories brings the past back to life, welded into a piercing, demanding present.
