I Am Awake
2 women on a stage jump in and out of 8 masked characters in a vibrant serenade.
A show full of humor, action, tenderness and everyday drama. A lively lullaby in 8 walks, 8 voices and 8 faces, and 8 ways to end and begin a day.
This character- and theme-driven show delves into the human comedy and drama which unfolds in the moments immediately before and after sleep. Live music (harp, trombone, ukulele, voice) weaves throughout.
"A work of admirable poetry and tenderness, the vision of these artists ... brings much humor, joy and rhythm to scenes of daily life which are everyone's." -- Michel Koebel, reviewer, Dernières Nouvelles d'Alsace
“It’s absolutely brilliant, finessed, poetic, intelligent …”-- Genevieve Stuckmann, audience member
“I recommend this! The show contains many talents (voice, harp …), and is a breath of fresh air in these dark times. -- Martine Buisson, audience member
