"Same old classic story, I fell in love during an Arabic class with an Italian girl that at first sight I thought was Palestinian."
Fragments of nightmares, traces of memories, and inherited wounds are creeping into Maia’s sleepless night. On Cloud Nine flows in a stream-of-consciousness form and portrays moments of the writer’s life that overpower her nights. Imprisoned within her own mind and unable to fall asleep, Maia is re-experiencing frantic episodes on a quest to find the wholeness of her existence. Juggling between her sexual, political, religious, and ethnic identities, Maia remembers her past and confronts her present. Spacing between childhood memories, intimate revelations, and recurring nightmares of wars never fought, On Cloud Nine echoes the history of Jews in Diaspora and the Middle East.
Written and performed by Mai Weisz | Directed by Laura Wohlwend | Produced by Tanya Truman | Lighting Design by Chloe Stally-Gibson | Sound Design by Yuval Brigg | Technical Production & Live Stream by Adam Lenson & Chris Czornyj at theatrical.solutions
