In February 2016, Savage Society along with the ensemble of Battle of the Birds were invited by Margo Kane, to perform as part of the Talking Stick Festival. Answering this call, the entire company, mostly community members of Lytton, traveled to Vancouver to share their production at The Roundhouse.
Based on a traditional Nlakap’amux story about a community confronting the issue of domestic violence, Battle of the Birds is a story set in the mythical time before time, when animals appeared like humans with animal attributes and spoke a similar language. The Bird nation is alarmed because Bald Eagle is abusive to his wife. Golden Eagle convinces the bird nation to conspire with him to rescue Bald Eagle’s Wife from him, but this means war.
