When historian Natalie Zemon Davis won the Holberg Prize for Trickster
Travels, her groundbreaking work on “decentering history,” she didn’t

Gaboriau and Antoni Cimolino, Artistic Director of the Festival and
director of the play, in a discussion of the evolution of Birds of a
Kind, conceived when playwright Wajdi Mouawad was asked to adapt the
book for the stage.
