Coucouville-les-nuées : une utopie politique ?

Abstract : The numerous adaptations of Aristophane’s Birds represent at least varied interpretations, if not antagonistic; poetic fantasy, mythical dimension and political issues invite authors and directors to register the ancient comedy in present time and to question the concept of Utopia; whereas the construction of a city in the clouds incarnates the desire of flight of human beings, this search of the ideal is at the same time the target of an unbridled satire. To dream to have wings, does that mean having a bird’s brain ?
