Battle of the Birds (2019)

Battle of the Birds 2019 was Savage Society’s fifth production in 5 years created with the community members of Lytton.


Based on a traditional Nlaka’pamux story about a community confronting the issue of domestic violence, Battle of the Birds is a story set in the mythical time before time, when animals appeared like humans with animal attributes and spoke a similar language. The Bird nation is alarmed because Bald Eagle is abusive to his wife. Golden Eagle convinces the bird nation to rescue Bald Eagle’s Wife, but this means war.
