Conference of the Birds

  • Roberts Studio Theatre 527 Tremont Street Boston, MA, 02116 United States (map)

Through the contemporary elements of video projection, original sound score, and an ensemble of dancers from across the globe, ANIKAYA Dance Theater invites you to experience an ancient tale about the soul’s search for meaning. Inspired by the Persian literary masterpiece The Conference of the Birds, this world premiere shares stories of modern epic journeys collected from members of local Muslim, immigrant, refugee and dance communities in a magnificent allegory about the human spirit and the quest for the divine. A global work incubated and developed in Boston, Conference of the Birds is a major original movement theater piece commissioned by Boston Center for the Arts.
