I Am the Wind
Original title: Eg er vinden
Publisher: Samlaget, 2008
I Am The Wind is a tale of enduring humanity against insurmountable odds. Two lifelong travelling companions are bound together on a journey across a vast ocean. At once moving and comic, this new work by one of Europe’s most widely performed playwrights dramatises the endless struggle to be human.
In I Am The Wind Fosse returns to a fundamental core of his authorship: Two friends parting ways. One character moves on or passes away, leaving the other behind to remember. In this play, the first character returns. Or does he?
