Directed by Nikos Karathanos
Adapted by Nikos Karathanos and Giannis Asteris

American Premiere

Following its sold-out World Premiere at the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus and in Athens, Greece, this vibrant restaging of Aristophanes’ ancient classic brings two Athenians to the country of the birds. Fed up with their city and the gods who rule over it, the mortals ask the birds to build them a new utopia that “embraces our inherent need to dream and offers hope for decadence.”

Performed in Greek with English subtitles.
