A research-based theater performance on dream destinations
Sail away, sail away, sail away...is there anyone
who hasn’t been dreaming of that for the last year
and a half? Landing on a tropical island far from
every day cares, the news and possibly the
pandemic? Inspired by several islands far away and
close by, known and unknown, real and metaphorical, a crew of international artists invite
the audience to join them on a journey to islands all
over the world, from the middle of the deep blue sea
to the four walls of our own homes.
Islands have always and continued to serve as the
focus of deeply contradictory imaginations fueling
both utopian fantasies as well as colonial and
imperial greed. The multimedia performance
Islands invites audiences to walk the fine line between them.
In Islands, a diverse ensemble of artists come
together to share their biographies, marked by migration and exploration and thus full of island stories, with each other as well as the audience.
