Beautiful Blackbird

Black Box Theatre
This show was designed especially for children under 5!
Theatre for the Very Young World Premiere

Inspired by the award-winning Ashley Bryan picture book, this rhythmic play explores the universal idea that true beauty is found within. Adapted from a Zambian folk tale, this story traces Blackbird’s courageous journey to share his truth that “color on the outside is not what’s on the inside.” Featuring an original jazzy score and inventive creative movement, Beautiful Blackbird brings Ashley Bryan’s inspired artwork to life in visceral and moving ways. Beautiful Blackbird is presented in conjunction with the High Museum of Art exhibition Painter and Poet: The Wonderful World of Ashley Bryan.
