Doves, a symbol of peace, clash with humans, as species and cultures mix together. BIRD, created in artistic collaboration between visual theatre company WHS from Finland and Pichet Klunchun Dance Company from Thailand, approaches human society from the perspective of birds.

We think our homes are as safe as bird nests, free from all threats luring on the streets of a city. Countries close their borders, hoping to create a safe ‘nest’ for their citizens, but are we really inside or outside of the pretty little birdcage? The cage may eventually become a prison with security guards at all exits and entrances.

On stage, the audience will see the performers being confined in a birdcage, yet teaching fake birds to fly. Liberating birds from a cage and letting them fly freely is thought to be a good deed, but for some people to set birds free, someone is taking them captive. Or is it perhaps the audience that is in the cage?

This performance is choreographed by Pichet Klunchun. Director Ville Walo quotes the words of the ancient Greek play Birds by Aristophanes to let the audience know that if anyone is keeping birds in cages, they, in turn, will be arrested by the birds, tied up and forced to work as decoys.
