Omi Mouna is the beautifully heartfelt, poignant and playful semi-autobiographical tale of Mohsen El Gharbi’s voyage from Montreal to Tunisia to meet his paternal great-grandmother and to retrace his family’s turbulent legacy. In its original French version, Omi Mouna toured extensively throughout Québec and New Brunswick. Infinithéâtre is proud to produce the English-language premiere of this compelling tragicomic tale by a highly charismatic performer.

The Sighlence of Sky, a non-verbal mask and mime piece, is a tender ode to the heart-ache and the love that live within family bonds, as a family navigates disability and neurodivergency. From creator Anana Rydvald: “The Sighlence of Sky is inspired by my resilient sister who is the innocent constant in our lives in which we reflect back our humanity again and again.” Rydvald last charmed Infinithéâtre audiences with her solo show, Love, Child.
The Sighlence of Sky is recommended for ages 12+.
