Kevin & Zeitgeist “For the Birds” Northern MN Tour, January 31-Feb. 2

Screen shot 2012-01-20 at 2.34.39 PM

Uniting the new music of Zeitgeist with the verbal creativity of humorist and writer Kevin Kling and the music of composer Victor Zupanc, For the Birds is truly a show for everyone.

This tour de force joins storytelling with musical interludes, songs and poetry in a one-hour musical and theatrical event. “Crow” delves into family relations. “Canadian Geese” explores marriage and loss. “Rooster” reveals our less noble tendencies. And “Hummingbirds” reminds us not to forget to live.

Through the combination of Kling’s insightful words, Zupanc’s colorful musical setting and Zeitgeist’s exuberant performance, For the Birds illuminates our human need for inspiration and imagination, and it offers a space to contemplate ourselves as individuals, families, communities and a species.
