WHAT IS CAGED BIRD?
In short: we're a production company founded in 2017.
In not so short: we're a lean, award-winning team of collaborators who tell the stories that we ourselves are hungry for. And we have pretty big appetites.
We strive to make work that is arresting, honest and empathic. From the moment you enter the theatre, cinema or other venue, a Caged Bird experience should feel personal. Electric. Different.
However, we care most of all about compelling creative voices. Whatever discipline you are in, if you’ve got a vision, we want to develop it with you, collaborate, and be representatives of your voice as you find your audience. We work with an ever-growing pool of collaborators from a variety of disciplines, including performance, design, cinematography, literature, photography and more.
Our mission: to always think big, personally address modern audiences, and explore the complexities of our
world through imagination.
Above all - nothing is static.
