Shape of an Eye

On stage the McQuails perform Shape of an Eye, a lyrical service invoking the ecstatic. Neither fully human nor fully bird, their plight is one of seasonal seclusion. The two bird-headed players reach out to one another through their marionette emissaries. Unable to migrate between worlds, the McQuails and puppets seek solace in transcendence.

We recommend programming Shape of an Eye alongside The MacQuails.
