The Crow Family

Nobody saw this happen so it may or may not be true.


A woman lives in the middle of a city, next to a tree that smells of lemons. In this tree lives a family
of crows, but their home is threatened by developers looking to build inner city apartments where
factories and shops used to be. One day, the child of the crows falls from the nest. As night falls,
the neighbourhood cats move in for the kill. The woman intervenes and her encounter with the
crows and their child transforms her life and ultimately transforms her.


Told by real life family, Maude Davey, David Pidd and their children, Alice (17) and Leo (10), The
Crow Family is a gentle, intimate, and beautiful music performance event about remarkable
creatures and what makes us human.

The Crow Family is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative
Victoria.

An urban parable about families, scavengers and cake.
