Sad Birds Pavilion - based on the novel of the same name by Bahtiyar Ali - takes you back to the past and the present. Sad Birds Pavilion follows the traces of a traditional Kurdish narrative and the musical beauty of the Kurdish language in a contemporary new form of expression. Stories of today are interwoven with the past. A journey in scents, sounds, time, colours, songs and body. In search of lost traces. Without fear. What makes us us?
