Join Copious Dance Theater for an epic tale of discovery! The Conference of the Birds is a new work from Artistic Director Kat (Worthington) Roman. Inspired by the ancient Persian poem with the same title by Farid ud-Din Attar, Conference of the Birds chronicles the journey of birds as they search for a leader. As the quest to find their leader ensues, Roman successfully moves her dancers to examine temptation, yearning, and self-discovery. Copious Dance Theater breathes vision and life into this ancient prose with a narrative that is accessible to any audience.

The evening will also include audience favorite, Taka, an energetic piece from Roman’s Horton Technique students entitled Bleuphoria, and Glass Slippers, a new piece by guest choreographer Erik Wagner.
