In this wry comedic play, an adolescent Felix recalls working summers at his father's tropical-bird theme park in Miami, where imported flamingos serve as a metaphor for his feelings of entrapment, estrangement and disconnection. Through movement, video, and sound, the birds played by actors help Felix reconstruct foggy and embellished memeories of his past.
