A new dance work in 6 parts, enjoy the story of a young magpie across 12 months living at Middleton Beach. “As the sun rises over Middleton Beach, the morning warble of the magpies can be heard. High above the ground, in the branch of a Norfolk Pine, sits a lonely, young magpie. She is searching for a mate and dreaming of a family of her own”
