Naomi’s Flight is s sixty-minute solo aerial performance about aging and elder care that takes place on three asymmetrical suspended steel sculptures. Written and performed by Mara Neimanis, directed by Bryce Butler, Naomi’s Flight is a universal drama created out of personal experience, that reveals the love story of George, an 80 year old care giver, and his wife Naomi who has diabetes and been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Naomi’s Flight is a powerful, poetic, and humorous, journey into the courageous and upside down world of day to day living with these epidemic diseases and the inverted healthcare system that is in place to do so. A moving portrait of a family, the enduring bonds and obligations of love.
Mara and I are very proud of this show. Many people, who saw the show during its two nights at Creative Alliance, commented that they were afraid the show might be depressing given the subject matter, but found themselves instead deeply touched and uplifted by the show.
