STORY OF BIRDS — Led by Maryam Wootan, residents gathered at the Beacon Farmers’ Market on Nov. 13 for a dance performance and march to Polhill Park in support of protestors in Iran. Here, dancers portray birds with their feet caught in a net, paralyzed with fear, until one begins to move her wings and they realize together they can lift the net into the sky.
