‘Birds’; new play from Rajiv Krishnan. At Medai, Alwarpet. Mar 25 – 27.

Perch presents its new play, Birds this weekend in Alwarpet. 

Written by Vinod Ravindran and directed by Rajiv Krishnan, this is a social satire laced with fantasy, is performed in English and other languages and has music, movement and stories – including a story of a Metro rail line proposed through a village and how its residents react to this development. 

The parallel story is inspired by ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes’ play The Birds, first performed in 414 BC. “It’s a story about stifling people’s rights, and how they fight it with resilience and courage,” Rajiv has been quoted in a blog post.
