World Premiere Performance of “Birdie” at Canterbury Shaker Village

December 19, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Canterbury Shaker Village presents the world premiere performance of “Birdie,” the first holiday “Entertainment” produced at the Village in nearly 90 years. The dance-driven theatrical production will be presented Saturday, December 18 and Sunday, December 19 at 3 PM in the Hubbard Gallery as part of the “Merry Merry Canterbury” festivities that will make the season bright from 1 – 5 PM.

 Dance-Artist-In-Residence Lorraine Chapman, inspired by the story of the last girl raised by the Canterbury Shakers, created “Birdie” with a group of six dancer-performers after diving into the Village’s rich archives. The piece harkens back to the beloved “Entertainments” produced by the Shakers, which included reading, reciting, singing, playing instruments, and performing scenes from plays.
