Bye Bye Blackbird
Arif Ali Shah
A period drama set in the early years of the 20th century, Bye Bye Blackbird is the story of Josef, a former construction worker who once delighted in dancing on girders high above the city, but now sweeps up at the circus.
Once the big top’s owner spots the young roustabout defying gravity on the trapeze, however, he endeavors to pair Josef with his aerialist daughter Alice in a perilous sky-high pas de deux. Offers a romantic view of big top life, with a moth-eaten angel in his feathered, tattered costume.
