In a live performance – and with a monumental book as the centerpiece - Anaïs López takes her audience on an incredible journey. She tells a story about a little black bird with yellow legs, a wild crest and a sharp cry. Everybody in Singapore knows the Javan Myna, and everybody hates him.
‘The Migrant’ is the remarkable life story of a bird, a story about how we treat animals, about the feasibility of the perfect city and about our efforts to create a perfect society. At the same time it is a metaphor for our attitude towards the ‘migrant’."
