Bird Watching was made possible by a grant from the Jerome Robbins New Essential Works (NEW) Program, in partnership with the Rockefeller Brothers Fund’s Charles E. Culpepper Arts and Culture Grants and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s. Bird Watching was developed and rehearsed in part at the Baryshnikov Arts Center.
