‘… even carrion crows sing love-songs.’

In ancient Greece and Rome designated ‘Augurs’ determined the ‘Auspices’, the will of the gods, by interpreting the flight patterns of birds. In Cirque des Oiseaux – ‘circus of the birds’ – Maria McManus offers a contemporary take on this ancient practice. Belfast-based poet, McManus is the author of We Are Bone, The Cello Suites, and Reading the Dog. Her work has been translated and performed across Europe.
