The National Bird is an experimental performance series highlighting several migratory animals. It builds on the premise that wild creatures can legally cross territorial boundaries anytime and anywhere without checkpoints. This body of work illuminates the privilege they have in their choice of travel, location of settlement, and ease of traversing borders, both in the physical and imaginary worlds.
