Avis Urbanus is a playful and dreamlike exploration. In an old building, the performer is both frantic and calm, interacting with archetypal toy elements and stuffed birds that refer to imagined human narratives. Created in response to composer Ofer Ben-Amots flute solo of the same name, it features Leslie Seiters as dancer/performer, John McMurtery on flute, Claudia and Rachel Esslinger on camera and Claudia Esslinger on video concept and postproduction. The piece has been performed with live flute by numerous musicans from Australia to Colorado.
