In The Birds there is a
new perception of space beyond the human capacity of action and ability
to move. Itís a place without gravity. An idealized world and order
cannot be established in such a place and thatís why ďThe BirdsĒ is a
In my design I wanted to create my own utopia. I created a theatre space
which didnít exist before. In this theatre all the walls, the ceiling,
the floor are made from transparent materials. It is about 1350
squaremeters. There are sliding panels inside this area and the area can
be seperated into different rooms according to different needs. There is
a cafe, lobby, office, toilets, backstage and depot in the theatre.
The Birds will be performed in an aquarium located in this place. By the
time the play begins, the aquarium will start to fill with water. When
it is completely full, none of the players will be able to step on the
ground. This way the ideas of the ground, the movement, and the sky will
all be observed in one place. The aquarium refers to the struggle to
establish order in a place without gravity just like it is in the play.
