I Am The Wind
by Jon Fosse - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School Directors' Cuts Season 2017
Two men on a fragile boat. A trip to sea, a few drinks, a bite to eat. The One decides to sail further out in the threatening fog on the open ocean, bound with The Other on a journey into the unknown among the distant islands, looking for a place to exist.
I Am The Wind explores the relationship between a man struggling to find lightness in his existence and a man trying to understand and rescue him. Through the use of a poetic style, Jon Fosse (reminiscent of Harold Pinter and Samuel Beckett), questions the ability of language to accurately express how one feels. I Am The Wind invites us to follow the poignant journey of two men on the flow of life.
