With a common interest rooted in the research on the actor’s craft, theatre arts, music and songs, international collaborators of Sourcing Within, under the direction of Ang Gey Pin, often come together through constant intensive work sessions and theatrical presentations. They would research on certain themes of interest, investigated their differences, drew from their own cultures / traditions, and dialogued with inspiring works of theatre, film, dance and finally devised and created their work.
Wandering.Birds is one of such collaborations led and directed by Ang. Collaborators include musician Nickolai D. Nickolov (Bulgaria/Italy), performers Marian Araujo (Spain/Ireland), Riccardo Brunetti (Italy) and Sonia Pastrovicchio (Italy). It was premiered at Teatro Akropolis, Genoa, Italy, March 2011.
