“FLIGHT: torn like a rose”, is a dance-theater performance celebrating the12th century Persian sufi poem, “Conference of the Birds”, that inspires us to sacrifice self-interest and worldly gain for community transformation.
Inspired by the revered poem by Iranian poet Farid ud-Din Attar, “Conference of the Birds”, Peggy Choy Dance brings to life an allegorical tale of the world’s birds embarking on a dangerous journey in search of the Wondrous Rose of Love. The few birds that survive make a surprising and transformative discovery. At a time when the West is anxious about the Middle East, “FLIGHT” challenges us to ask, Can we live in a state of deep love in a time of chaos and violence?
