Melbourne artist Will Foster and body poet Sabrina D’Angelo respond to lyrebird’s modes of display, referencing the Australian Ballet’s production of The Display (1964) by Robert Helpmann, with costumes designed by Sidney Nolan. Shick shick, chh chh, brum-brum-brum-brum-brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, eeeoooeeeooo. Bwwob bwwwobbubwub vooRRRR vooRRR vooooRRR. Begging for love and attention, the Superb Lyrebird mimics the worst of human behaviours.
