The Making of Bird Brain - A Documentary

Over the course of 10 weeks during Winter Term 2020, 82 intrepid 4th and 5th graders from Lewis Elementary came together, along with theatre professionals on school staff, parent volunteers, and an Arts-Educator-In-Residence (that's me!), to create a theatre show worthy of a 20th anniversary edition - and do we deliver!

If you've ever wondered what it's like to create art with kids, this documentary will give you the inside scoop. Featuring teaching techniques by Tori Padellford, professional actress and Lewis Elementary Library Assistant II; the Ten Breaths Away breathing and warm up methods, and student interviews. 

It's as heartwarming as it is eye-opening.

Total run time is 47 minutes.
