Jackie Kerin: Tales from the Flyway: April, May and October

Tales from the Flyway is a storytelling show I developed with violinist Sarah Depasquale. Sarah and I share a love of wetlands and birds, especially those found at our doorstep in Hobsons Bay in the south-east  corner of Australia.
Together we will take you on a journey following the path of migratory shore birds, from Australia to Siberia, along the East Asian Australasian Flyway. The show is playful and occasionally enlightening.

There are some significant celebratory days for the birds in the calendar and Sarah and I developed our show to highlight these.

April 12 - 16
We are heading of to NSW for the Stone the Crows Festival. As well as Flyway, we'll be kept busy with workshops and presentations, and in the evening, Bed Time Tales. You can follow the festival on Facebook.
