THE CONFERENCE OF THE BIRDS

THE CONFERENCE OF THE BIRDS

THE FOLGER THEATER
WASHINGTON, DC
OCTOBER 2012

Director: Aaron Posner
Scenery: Meghan Raham
Costumes: Olivera Gajic



"Interspersed with columns and backdrops of mirrored surfaces, the set is completed in its mythic proportions with the notions of Lighting Designer Jennifer Schriever."

Amanda Gunther - DC Metro Theatre Arts


"Whatever its deeper meanings, Folger Theatre’s The Conference of the Birds, in a stage version by Peter Brook and Jean-Claude Carriere and directed by Aaron Posner, is a downright brilliant piece of theater. The key words are intricacy and precision. The main elements: Erika Chong Shuch’s choreography for the ensemble cast, involving a significant degree of coordinated group movement, unison breathing, hand gestures, and occasional bits of tumbling; Jennifer Schriever’s spectacularly detailed and varied lighting design; Tom Teasley’s music on multiple instruments."

Bob Ashby - Showbizradio


"A shimmering dream-space where mirages materialize, tempt, and vanish. The ensemble’s skilled movement work lends the piece an organic simplicity well-suited to the story’s timeless subject matter, while Teasley’s music and Jennifer Schriever’s lights usher audiences into a world of opulent myth."

Robert Duffley - DC Theatre Scene


"The rich and suggestive costumes are by Olivera Gajic, the imposing set by Meghan Raham, and the whole is lit with surpassing grace by Jennifer Schriever."

Trey Graham - Washington City Paper


"They would be aided by designer Jennifer Schriever’s lights, which not only cast many of the ensemble’s more dynamic tableaus in a memorable light, but also by the sudden transitions those lights provided."
