ShoulderBirds was founded in May, 2016 by a group of friends dedicated to honing the craft of theatre.

Our name is based on the Norse myth about Huginn and Muninn, Odin's ravens. Huginn (often translated as 'thought') and Munnin ('mind' or 'desire') were given the ability to speak and flew all over the world to collect information for Odin. In the poem Grímnismál, Odin says:

"Hugin and Munin fly each day over the spacious earth. I fear for Hugin, that he come not back, yet more anxious am I for Munin."

We seek to engage audiences and artists through productions focussed on emotional and ideological experiences by balancing the ideas represented in Huginn and Muninn.
