The Birds : In seek for a juster society (BDA_BE0104)

     
The project "The Birds" takes as a starting point the adaptation in french language by Bernard Chartreux, Cité des oiseaux (Paris, éd. Ecritures théâtrales, 1989).
The project has been developped first as a 2nd year exercise under the guidance of Béatrice Massinger, and next achieved under the guidance of Xavier de Coster as the first exercise of the 3rd year. 
This is a site specific project in the area of Brussels.  The place choosen by this student is the Place Poelaert, in front of the Justice Palace, which is like a balcony upon the lesser part of the town.

Between sky and ground !
As a basis to create an ideal city, the birds are making use of roofs that are used to serve until now as building-tops.
Between their world and the world of the gods on the land of the free birds, our two heros try to build a ideal city, with a demagogic blow of arguments. Will they succeed ?
