Two mirages. On the one hand wars, droughts, political instability, persecution, forced deportation, abuse of natural resources, food shortages… On the other, stocked supermarkets, safe streets, good health services, welfare, human rights, renewable energy, prosperity and freedom.

And in between, flocks of birds, thousands of them constantly drawing impossible shapes in the sky. The ceaseless movement is continued by planets, asteroids, raw materials, galaxies, blood, cells, weapons, atoms, electrons, advertising, quarks, ideology, fear, waste, hope, life. Nothing in the cosmos is quiet.

Created by the Spanish theatre group Agrupación Señor Serrano, Birdie is a multimedia performance combining live video, thousands of scale objects, Hitchcock’s The Birds revisited and three performers attempting to grasp our messy world with wit and criticism.
