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.
All remaining performances are SOLD OUT. Join us Sunday, November 12th for a free Family Festival at the Woodruff Arts Center, featuring an opportunity to see Beautiful Blackbird for free. For more information, visit www.woodruffcenter.org/familyfun
