Rydvald returns to Infinithéâtre after her META-winning performance in Love, Child!
The Sighlence of Sky, a non-verbal mask and mime piece, is a tender ode to the heart-ache and the love that live within family bonds. From creator Anana Rydvald: “The Sighlence of Sky is inspired by my passionate parents, dear step-mother and myself. But most of all, it’s a piece inspired by my resilient sister who is the innocent constant in our lives in which we reflect back our humanity again and again.” Rydvald last charmed Infinithéâtre audiences with her solo show, Love, Child.
