Two mirages. In one: wars, droughts, massive deforestation, polluted coasts, labor exploitation, political instability, poor sanitary conditions, persecution, forced deportation, abuse of natural resources, depleted aquifers, food shortages… In the other: stocked supermarkets, safe streets, family stability, good health services, freedom, paid work, respect for human rights, welfare, recycling and renewable energies, prosperity, social mobility… And in between - flocks of birds. Thousands of migrating birds constantly drawing impossible shapes in the sky. Movement. Ceaseless movement. Birds… and beyond, planets, asteroids, raw materials, galaxies, blood, cells, weapons, atoms, electrons, advertising, quarks, ideology, fear, waste, hope. Life. Nothing in the cosmos is quiet. Stillness is a chimera. There is only the movement. If it is impossible to stop an electron, what’s the point in building fences against flocks of birds?

Birdie is a multimedia performance with live video, objects, Hitchcock’s The Birds revisited, scale models, 2000 mini animals, wars, smugglers, a massive migration and three performers handling this messy world with wit, criticism and commitment to humankind.


Founded by Àlex Serrano in Barcelona in 2006, Agrupación Señor Serrano is a theatre Company that creates original productions based on stories drawn from contemporary times. The Company uses the richness of innovative and vintage tools to extend the boundaries of its theater. Based on creative collaborations, Señor Serrano’s productions blend stage performance, text, video, sound, and scale models to stage stories about discordant aspects of today’s human experience. In 2015, Agrupación Señor Serrano was awarded the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale . In addition to this recognition, the company has won national and international awards and has received rave reviews in media such as The New York Times, Folha de Sao Paulo, Tiempo Argentino and El País.
