2019 Season at the Théâtre du Fort Antoine
July 2, 2019 @ 9:30 pm - 11:00 pm
The 2019 season at the Théâtre du Fort Antoine, “La conférence des oiseaux” (“The Conference of the Birds”) by Jean-Claude Carrière, performed by the Compagnie des Lumières et des Ombres, organised by the Monaco Department of Cultural Affairs is on Tuesday 2 July 2019, at 9:30 pm, Fort Antoine.
“The Conference of the Birds” is one of the best-known Sufi masterpieces by Persian poet Farid al-din Attar. The poem tells of the birds’ quest to find the legendary Simorgh, to become their sovereign. Instead, they discover that they themselves are the Simorgh. “The Conference of the Birds” is about our humanity, our suffering, and our beauty, and describes with great theatre and poetry the paths we should take throughout our lives, in order to truly discover ourselves.
