Vulture Sister Song

Saturday, April 8, 7pm (doors open at 6:45pm)

A.P.E. Gallery, 126 Main Street

Northampton, MA 01060

Vulture Sister Song explores human and more-than-human relationships through story, song, sculpture and dance. Collaborators from around the country, Ellen Smith Ahern, Kate Elias, Pete Dybdahl, Jacob Elias and Josina Guess, use live storytelling and folk music, a migrating herd of creature-like lanterns, curious movement and a healthy dose of humor to celebrate the possibilities of vibrant interdependence.

All participants receive a guidebook to the show, featuring artwork and writing from contributors (including environmental educators from VT Institute of Natural Science and the Yurok Tribe's Condor Conservation Program), as well as fun, thoughtful activities that carry themes explored in the performance out into the world beyond. (large print accommodations available)


Tickets: $5-$40, sliding scale.

Please choose the ticket tier that is appropriate to your means at this time. Select the "Other" option to enter a single ticket price not already reflected in the tiered amounts.

From the organizing artists:

Art should not be a privilege, but accessible to all who want to participate.

Toward that belief we offer tickets on a sliding scale. Please find the point on the scale that feels right for you, knowing that your contribution of any amount helps A.P.E. and the artists cover costs while also making this event accessible for others in the community.

Audiences are also invited to check out Vulture Watching, a film created in partnership with the live performance:

Vulture Watching: Considering Our Relationship Through Ecology, History and Art

(filmed with a live audience at Artistree Community Art Center, 2022)

A cross pollination of ecology, memory and folk music with collaborators from Vulture Sister Song. Lead Environmental Educator at the VT Institute of Natural Science, Anna Morris, guides us through the natural history and ecology of vultures, and Georgia-based writer, Josina Guess, shares writings inspired by watching and living in close proximity to black vultures and the unmarked graves of African American people.
