Beschreibung

The Conference of the Birds - The birds' flight through the desert reveals our fascination with the earthly, with existence. We may identify with the weaknesses of the Falcon who is devoted only to his master´s hands, or with the Peacock's vanity, enthrallment with the material, or the narrow mind of the Parrot, who sits unfettered in her cage without particular need … The birds do not want to leave the safe haven of the known world, similar to us humans who find it hard to cross the familiar boundaries of life and self-sufficiency.

Review:
Lorenci strips the seemingly fictitious beauty of the world (and theatre) down to the real, to the bare frame. The incursion of the physical counts neither on the doctrine of radical shock nor is it self-fulfilling. Low strikes are measured out with intensity and precision and assembled into a structure, which is a genre mishmash yet the director skillfully manipulates it into a rarely winning combination of the dramatic and the performative, marked with humor – at first inserted through improvisation on current themes and later on through a precise estrangement effect – and revealing the actors´ intimacy along with their collective vigour and synchronous ensemble performance.
