Conference of the Birds

Cot B 360 By 500

June 28 - June 30, 2013

A Staged Reading
Written by Meena Natarajan
Adapted from the poem by Farid ud Din Attar
Directed by Dipankar Mukherjee

Conference of the Birds metaphorically maps out the journey of the human ego and the quest for truth. In this classic tale, the birds of the world take flight on a pilgrimage to find their celebrated king, but the dangers and hardships encountered along the way cause many in the flock to abandon their search. In the end the small number of birds that survive uncover a profound secret.
