SATContemporary Reading Series: Karma for Birds

Nov 21, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

Karma for Birds is a startling, beautiful, humorous, and polemic first play by Karí Ósk Grétudóttir and Kristín Eiríksdóttir about the consequences of violence, injustice, and beauty. Perhaps, Elsa is a seventeen-year-old girl on sale, perhaps she is a middle-aged prostitute or a homeless old woman, or maybe she is a 130-year-old Buddhist nun.

Perhaps Karma for Birds—the invisible repression of women— is happening right here and now. Performed at the Iceland National Theatre in 2013, Karma for Birds was nominated for the Gríman, Iceland’s theater award for best play of the year.
