The Sighlence of Sky

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, as a family navigates disability and neurodivergency. From creator Anana Rydvald: “The Sighlence of Sky is 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.

The Sighlence of Sky is recommended for ages 12+. Please note that our closing performance on Dec. 5th (2pm) will be a relaxed performance. This means there will be a more in depth pre-show acknowledgement of themes discussed in the piece, the house lights will be slightly raised, and audience members are free to move, vocalize, or such. We at Infinithéâtre are committed to making theatre accessible to all audiences.
