Mind the Gap Presents Birdie in Exchange Square

Featuring three professional actors with learning disabilities, Birdie is an experience like no other, blending intricate choreography, original music, and captivating object manipulation to tell a powerful story about climate change.

The free show centres around the character Homie, who travels with their incredible self-contained mobile home, determined to make a difference in the face of the daunting climate crisis. Along the way, Homie meets Birdie, a new friend who’s struggling to navigate a world filled with plastics and pollution. But with Homie’s help, Birdie embarks on a journey towards freedom and hope, inspiring everyone around them to take positive action and stand up for what’s right.

But the excitement doesn’t end there! After the show, the audience will have the chance to interact with Homie’s incredible mobile home, complete with designs that make climate change accessible and easy to understand.
