Perhaps this story starts from this phrase: “I am the Truth”
A faith that embraces nothing more than the one Living Truth, animating the hearts of mystics through the ages and across the world.
The story of this performance is based on the 4500-line Iranian epic poem The Conference of the Birds; its captivating poetic style explores the fundamental nature of truth (God, wisdom). The birds of the world, each of which holds special significance, seek out the Simorgh - a mythical Persian bird much like the phoenix.
Brook’s stage adaptation of this 12th-century Persian poem first came on stage in 1979.
