Employing the mysticism of contemporary dance and stimulating stellar visuals, the theatre group is sure to give its spectators goose-bumps. The event will take place at Ahmedabad's Natrani Amphitheater from January 26-29.
A magical theatrical experience
Inspired from the 12th-century Persian poem 'Conference of the Birds' or 'Speech of the Birds' by the pen of the celebrated Sufi poet Farid ud-Din Attar, this play will relive and rediscover the journey of the birds, and along with it, the journey of human psyche. It has also been partly adapted from Peter Brook's popular theatrical version of the same.
"A flock of confused birds set out on a journey of self-discovery over difficult and challenging terrains, encountering strange beings who take them to different realities," the description reads.
Explore the highs & lows of life
The director of the play, Yadavan Chandran, has famously directed many well-appreciated musicals, short films, and theatrical delights. He is also the artistic director of Darpana Academy of Performing Arts.
Head to this play that'll shed light on the highs and lows of life through the soaring flight of the birds, and, at the same time, undertake the metaphorical journey to unravel emotions galore.
