A new text by Wajdi Mouawad has come to us, and it's an immense poem that gives wings to a great production. The characters of Tots Ocells (All Birds) try to make themselves understood and hurt each other, they seek to explain themselves to know who they are, to speak in their different languages, their worlds, their beliefs. We want to embrace all the life it contains and expand it on stage, like a cry of rage and pain, like an ancient question, like a song that pierces our soul.

Synopsis

Eitan is a young man from a German Jewish family living in New York, studying human DNA. He meets Wahida, a young woman of Arab origin who is writing her thesis on a 16th-century humanist scholar who was forced to convert from Islam to Christianity. They fall in love, and Eitan will have to confront his family and his religious beliefs. But when the two embark on a journey to Israel and the West Bank, Eitan is caught in a terrorist attack on the Allenby border bridge, leaving him in a deep coma. This forces his family to travel from Germany to Tel Aviv, where they will discover their family's past and face the overwhelming presence of Wahida, while the world erupts in a mixture of beliefs, human DNA, religion and chance.

They will all be forced to cross the painful border between family love and the hatred of prejudice, where the violence of the outside world hovers over small domestic life and where generations crumble when the past overwhelms the present.

Management notes

 

For almost three years now, this text has been beyond our dreams. He came into my mind the first time I read it, and I think of it as a way of continuing the great projects that we want to tackle from La Perla 29. To build a great spectacle from a text - again groundbreaking and tremendously exciting - by the author of Fires, Forests and Heavens. Getting closer to the essence of something deep, hitting the spectators and once again posing the old dilemma of the theater: mirror or hammer?  

I remember the silences of the great opening nights, and I think of the new characters. And I'm excited to think about how these great actors and actresses will shape their new silences. How are we going to work the difficulty of understanding ourselves. How are we going to find a language, a language.

This show is born out of an imperative need to get to rehearse and show a story to viewers. How to tell her and make her live, all together. It is born of the mad desire for theater. It is a great feeling of collectiveness and a conviction that a useful and much-loved work can emerge; a passionate, fascinating and necessary work.
