Description: This madcap adventure is set in a community of birds. Using the imagination of the audience, a
broken umbrella, a stick, a bit of cloth, the actors conjure from the air an ostrich, two conniving
crows, and many other feathered friends. The elders of the bird community decide to hold a Peace
Song Competition to foster community spirit and co-operation. Alas! It is not as easy as they may
have wished. SQUAWK is ideal for all children under the age of 90. The spoken languages are
English, Zulu and Bird! “An entertaining and profound story of peace.” Originally devised and
performed in preparation for the peaceful social transition that occurred in South Africa after the
demise of apartheid – this physical theatre piece has been performed around the world – London,
Edinburgh, Adelaide, Canada and twice at SDSU’s Theatre of the World Festival in 1999 and 2004.
