CONFERENCE OF THE BIRDS--a journey inward, outward, upward, onward

derived from the mystic poet Attar’s beloved parable of spiritual transformation--or liberation philosophy.  The birds of the world set out in search of a king; what they find is something much better than they expected.

written and directed by Maia Ramnath featuring choreography by all the cast

THE UNFOLDING SKY—created and directed by Scott Combs and Wendy Louie

In a mental hospital in Dresden, Germany at the turn of the 20th century, Daniel Paul Schreber wrote a memoir of what he described as divine visions--people momentarily inhabited by errant souls, and birds speaking to him from god.  A former judge, Schreber wrote of his treatment to appeal the institutionalization of people against their will.

We produce every play on the assumption that it will still be unfinished when it appears on the stage. We do this consciously because we realize that the crucial revision of a production is that which is made by the spectator.
