BIRDS

by Abigail Akavia and HilĂ  Lahav

BIRDS is a performance piece for three women, based on the figures of Cassandra and Iphigenia.

A reclaiming of Aeschylus’ Agamemnon through song, dance, sound, and visuals.

Sing, Sorrow

Ailinon ailinon eipe.
Sing sorrow, sorrow.

No one knows the future till it comes,
And it will come with sunlight dawning clear.
The prophecies were not in vain, you hear.

Sing, sing, sorrow.
