ESCAPE from THE SKY (working title)
Are you an atheist? Does the thought of a white authoritarian figure in the sky make you laugh your tits off? I’m totally with you. We sit on the right side of the debate, with logic, rational thought and Ricky Gervais tweets. But what happens when logic isn't what you need and faith looks rather appealing.
Escape from the sky is about mental illness, south asian culture and my nan’s holy water. Escape the sky explores the hilarity, the annoyance and maybe, most importantly, the beauty of what faith can do in the face of an illness.
ESCAPE THE SKY HAS BEEN AWARDED THE 2016/17 FLYING SOLO COMMISSION BY CONTACT MANCHESTER THE WORK WILL be DEVELOPED AND PREMIERED AT FLYING SOLO FESTIVAL 2017.
