Theatre for Birds (Teatro para pájaros) shows a group of six people enmeshed in a web of unusual love relationships. The dialogues focus attention on the power games between partners, on the silent aggression and submission that determine the politics of every relationship. Veronese persistently alludes to man's vulnerability, to fear of losing one's partner in an atmosphere of light entwinement of relations, and to the impossibility of expressing any kind of a fixed meaning through the medium of language
