The Conference of the Birds or Speech of the Birds (1177) is a Persian poem by Sufi poet Farid ud-Din Attar, aka Attar of Nishapur. It is also the inspiration for a play that Anna is been performing across the country, since the premiere in July 2018 at the Napoli Teatro Festival.
This time the middle-eastern wisdom was brought to the lucky audience of the Ricciardi Theater in Capua (not far from Anna’s home town) and the performance with Tommaso De Santis was enriched by the great musical performance of local artist Flavia Salemme, playing pieces of Hans Otte and Tito Rinesi, composer and musical consultant of the crew.
