Conceptually Finders Keepers considers the ideas of physical and emotional possession and the social demands to ‘sing our best songs’ for others. Using the songbirds as a reference and inspiration, choreographically Finders Keepers displays material and creative concepts that capture both the beauty and vulnerability of the caged birds, expressing the intimate balance between the keeper and the kept, the lover and the loved.
"I found this concept of socializing caged birds somewhat strange, beautiful and utterly disturbing," says Hill. "The work is based around a man who brings a 'bird' into his home and the dynamics that then unfold between his wife and his son. Three dancers and one actor play out a funny, poignant story."
