Loosely based upon the fear-mongering tale of Chicken Little, The Private Life of Chickens "follows the lives of four, feisty fowls as they struggle with the end of the world. Narrated by a cocky British news anchor, the chickens go to great extremes to win this battle on the sky as fear and hysteria build. With a Julia Childs inspired cooking show, a drunken dance off, a hallucinogenic trip to the underworld, the mania unfolds as the chickens battle with an unknown foe in this hysterical adventure- served sunny-side up!"

Created by Scott Lyons, in collaboration with the cast, Chickens’ first workshop production will take place at Dance New Amsterdam.  Prior to performances both nights, audiences are invited to join the cast and friends of the Company to celebrate Scott Lyons’ birthday in style with drinks and snacks! Tickets can be reserved at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/249657.
 
The Private Life of Chickens stars Scott Lyons and Company collaborating artists, Lindsay Gilmour, Amii LeGendre, Anne Bloom, and Bradford Scobie, in addition to creator and founder, Scott Lyons.
Scott Lyons and Company’s mission is to create provocative, witty and engaging dance-theater spectacles. The company utilizes a cross pollination of genres and aesthetics to create work that reconstructs the limitations of perception, while fusing highly virtuosic art with contagious iridescent humor. Known for creating challenging, collaborative work, served hot with a side of comedic timing, Scott Lyons and Company has produced work at Dixon Place, Dance New Amsterdam, Roulette, as well as across the country and around the world.
