It fell between chairs.
wet inside my outside
becoming where you live to see
how to fall
when will home find my eyes
haven't felt their winds before
bodies never touch the ground
who will fall between the chairs?

Created in the months leading up to the departure of four BIRDHOUSE artists to various countries across the globe, Ifbc. deals intimately with the tragedy and power of change, while also deconstructing gender and what are perceived as “normal” relationships.
Ifbc. exists in three parts and is the first collaboratively directed work by BIRDHOUSE.
Directed by Bryn Hlava, this ensemble work is an exploration of what it is to be in the context of another. What it is to be alone, how we leave, how we are left behind. What is it to truly see another? This collaboration with BIRDHOUSE exists as a redefinition of gender and bodily intimacy, and a glimpse into a community moving through the reverberations of loss and relation.
Directed by Raven Taisce White, this duet challenges conceptions of gender roles and loneliness, as Bryn Hlava and Mitchell Christie push through misunderstandings and unexpected unions even as the space between them grows to unimaginable size.
Directed by Sebastian Abarbanell, this ensemble work normalizes gender expression while challenging power dynamics that inherently exist in any community. Nakedness and coveredness become a means of connection and honoring the power of the human body.
