Directed by: Craig Kolkebeck
"In a tale of opulent mystery, The Conference of the Birds , based on a 12th century 4500 line Sufi poem, invites the audience on a magical journey of a group of birds who come together to seek their King, the mythical Simorgh. To do so, they must travel through vast valleys and deserts on a journey laced with riddles and parables, all along the way exploring deep spiritual questions and reflecting on their individual search for the meaning of God. This production will tell this magical story through traditional and non-traditional styles of theatre including dance, puppetry and shadow-play."
