Inspired by Chekhov's The Seagull with elements of Ginsberg's KaddishBird Shitis a multimedia performance piece that combines theater, dance, video, live and prerecorded music, and a few surprise elements. The Seagull, one of Chekhov's most celebrated plays, follows: the romance, conflicts and follies of a playwright, Treplev; Nina, an aspiring starlet; Trigorin, a famous writer; and Treplev's mother Arkadina, a fading actress. Inserted into the performance, is Kaddish, a reflection on mourning. The combination of both works culminates in an experience contemplating on questions of love, art and death.

Bird Shit is produced by Shruti Ganguly and Anna Kooris. The production is commandeered by artist and musician, Nina Ljeti, choreographer, Chloe Kernaghan, and NYU Graduate Film students Joshua RichardsZach Kershberg and Tine Thomasen, under the guidance of James Franco.
