Three great names of European theatre come together for this extraordinary international collaboration. France's leading director of theatre, opera and film Patrice Chéreau (La Reine Margot) directs his first ever English language stage production; Jon Fosse's I Am the Wind, presented in a new adaptation by Olivier Award winner Simon Stephens (Pornography, Punk Rock).
I Am the Wind is the result of a large-scale creative collaboration between Théâtre de la Ville, Paris and the Young Vic. After premiering at the Young Vic, it will tour this summer to Paris, Vienna, Lyon, Barcelona and Avignon (see Notes to Editors for dates).
Two lifelong travelling companions are bound together on a journey across a vast ocean. As night falls, they eat and drink together and test each other in ways neither could have thought possible. Comic and yet deeply moving, this work by Jon Fosse – one of Europe's most widely performed living playwrights – is a moving contemporary fable.
