I Sing like a Bird

Wednesday, February 21st, 2007

Plavo The theatre company Plavo pozoriste presents “I Sing Like a Bird” on February 25th and 26th at Cultural Centre REX in Belgrade, Serbia. The play is based on the contradictions related to the issue of freedom, this time from the point of view of a European whose life is filled with senselessness, confusion, mindlessness and dreams, just like the lives of all other people who no longer want to resort to lies. The writings of Herman Hesse provide inspiration for the play as well as Indian classical song and dance.
