2014 Neustadt Festival Dispatches: “The Birds of God”

Thursday, October 23, 2014


Performed for an audience of over seven hundred public school students from Oklahoma City, Norman, and Noble, the OU School of Dance and Drama production of Mia Couto’s “The Birds of God” was a beautiful blend of expressive choreography and vivid narration. Directed by Susan Shaughnessy, the musical choreo-drama was adapted from Couto’s story. Check out the full photo gallery to get a glimpse of the performance, and mark your calendars for tomorrow morning’s events that will wrap up the festival.
