Conference of the Birds

by Sholeh Wolpé
directed by Giulio Cesare Perrone

NOV 30–DEC 16

In a Kingdom with no ruler, ten thousand birds set out to find a King none have ever seen. Led by the wise Hoopoe, the birds journey through dangers, distractions and difficulties, their Conference growing smaller each day. 

Adapted from the celebrated Sufi poem, this lyrical parable is a timeless reflection on the search for meaning on a journey toward something larger than ourselves.
