A Passion for Birds Nature- Animals,
Nature- Environment,
Science
A Passion for Birds is a comic, interactive, educational show about adaptation. It uses realistic, handmade masks to explore how different species have evolved different shapes and behaviors to adapt to their environment. Combining his passion for nature and performance, Henry weaves through the crowd acting out the birds while explaining the hows and whys of their diverse appearances and actions. Participants get to don the masks and soar as Eagles, swim as Puffins, and stalk as Herons. Henry Lappen has been performing comedy for over 30 years. He has been an avid student of nature since childhood. In this show, he combines his love and knowledge of birds, with his comic timing, and artistry in mask making and performing. Henry studied mime, mask and clowning at California’s Dell’Arte School of Physical Comedy. He is a member of the Hampshire Bird Club and the Northeast Hawkwatch. Henry was a Great Blue Heron in a past life. In this life, he is also a tango dancer!
