Amal and Gordon meet on the opulent streets and shadowy alleys of Taksim, the commercial heart of Istanbul where every conceivable transaction takes place. She is a Syrian refugee, he a privileged westerner from northern Europe.
Individual stories, images and impressions gathered by Zajac through visits to Istanbul and interviews with Syrian women rebuilding their lives in the city give voice to the characters, particularly to the voice of women, in relation to gender politics and resistance to war and exploitation. THE SKY IS SAFE is a love story, a war story and a microcosm of our time.
From the creators of Dogstar's multi-award-winning THE TAILOR OF INVERNESS, THE SKY IS SAFE promises to be a highlight of the 2017 Edinburgh Festival.
An outstanding cast and creative team combine to evoke a cry from the heart from the streets of Istanbul and the tragedy of Syria.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Sky Is Safe are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
