The Costumes of "The Conference of The Birds"

Thursday, Feb 16, 2017

Since late January, visitors to the NYU Tisch School of the Arts have been greeted by a lobby lineup of costumes from Tisch Drama StageWorks' production of The Conference of the Birds." Kaylee Harris, a senior in the Department of Drama's Production & Design Studio, conceived the costumes for the project, which was helmed by Syrian director Naila Al-Atrash. Based on the 12th Century poem by Farid ud-Din Attar and adapted for the stage by Peter Brook and Jean-Claude Carriere, The Conference of the Birds is a theatrical Sufi meditation that travels a community of mythical birds through a series of trials and tribulations as they attempt to understand the essence of the soul. 

Enjoy the lineup of photos below.
