I On The Sky

Ages: 10+
Lang: Non-verbal

I on the Sky focuses on exile and the hope left by those who disappear and on ghosts haunting us all. It speaks of being open to others and resiliency, an unfathomable ability that allows us to move forward. It deals with life going on.

I on the Sky has no spoken lines. It leads audiences into a world of movement, imagery and music, where poetry sways reality.

A bench in the wind, where a woman blown in by a storm finds refuge. Like all exiled people who are forced to flee and leave everything behind, she hopes for a better life. As a stranger, she finds herself gazing at the sky, which becomes her only reference point. The exiled woman sits on a bench in the middle of a park, recalls her past and tries to talk to people walking by in the hope of retracing of what she has lost. Her eyes meet those of a young runaway girl.
