I AM THE WIND
By JON FOSSE
Directed by PAUL TAKACS
Translated by SIMON STEPHENS
With LOUIS BUTELLI* & CHRISTOPHER TIERNEY*
MR. FOSSE'S TERSE, RHYTHMIC SCRIPT CAPTURES A GUT-LEVEL ANXIETY ABOUT ELEMENTAL QUESTIONS OF IDENTITY.
-Ben Brantley, The New York Times
ELEMENTAL AND POETIC! DEEPLY HUMAN.
HYPNOTIC AND CRYPTICALLY HAUNTING.
CHRISTOPHER TIERNEY BRINGS A POWERFUL PRESENCE AND A CLEAR VOICE TO HIS ROLE.
LOUIS BUTELLI IS INTELLIGENT AND WARM, GIVING AN INCREDIBLY PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE.
-New York Theatre Review
From the company that brought you the critically acclaimed Tender Napalm by Philip Ridley, comes a new play by Jon Fosse.
The wind gathers, rising up suddenly. Two men on a fragile boat, a trip to sea - a few drinks, a bite to eat - when one of them decides to push on to the open ocean. Suddenly there they are: among the distant islands, the threatening fog and gathering swell of the sea, bound together on an odyssey into the unknown.
The running time of I Am the Wind is 60 minutes with no intermission.
I AM THE WIND is an Equity Approved Showcase.
