In the barren immigration office of a strange country, two naïve applicants wait (and wait… and wait….) for their papers to be approved. Between escapades with naturalization forms, barking loudspeakers, and a tangle of miscommunications in wacky foreign languages, our heroines navigate absurd catastrophes small and large with infectious optimism and remarkable endurance.
Inspired by true stories of female immigrants who journeyed alone to London or New York from Kenya, Ecuador, and Haiti, UNDER THE SKIFF premieres in September at the Galerie G – L’Art au Garage in Paris before arriving in New York. Following its NYC engagement, the show will then travel to New Orleans’ popular experimental theater venue, The Allways Theatre.
The cast features Maja Bieler and Jennifer Sargent.
Jennifer Sargent is the Artistic Director of Vagabond Inventions, an association of physical theater artists based in New York City.
