The Birds by Aristophanes | National Theatre of Nothern Greece

Fed up with the political, social and financial corruption of the city, Pesthetaerus and Euelpides seek Tereus, formerly a human and currently transformed into a Hoopoe, in order to learn from him and from the other high-flying and perhaps knowledgeable birds whether there is a peaceful place where they could settle.
Together they intend to found a new republic, somewhere between heaven and earth, Nephelokokkygia (literally Cloud-cuckoo-land), which will hold dominion over both humans and gods, and where birds will have their rightful place.
