"Cage Dies Bird Flies" is an ongoing, multi-disciplinary art project by writer Ben Miller and painter Dale Williams. The project has been developed for exhibition, sound recording, performance, and publication. Cage Dies Bird Flies on Youtube will present video of the performance component of the project. The idea for the performances evolved out of a set of 81 large-scale paintings by Dale Williams based on few-word texts by Ben Miller. Neither of the artists has a background in the performing arts. The untrained and antic emotional rawness of their act brings to actual life the world that percolates beneath the images/texts. The artists conceive of their project as a living illuminated book, presented as post-modern vaudeville, suitable for art world venues and county fairs.
