Synopsis: 

From the company that brought you the critically acclaimed Tender Napalm by Philip Ridley, comes a new play by Jon Fosse.

The wind gathers, rising up suddenly. Two men on a fragile boat, a trip to sea - a few drinks, a bite to eat - when one of them decides to push on to the open ocean. Suddenly there they are: among the distant islands, the threatening fog and gathering swell of the sea, bound together on an odyssey into the unknown.

    Converse All You Want, but Don’t Expect Connection

    Ben Brantley

    January 17, 2014: It can get pretty lonely for a guy in the middle of an ocean. That proposition — being pursued with intensity on screen by Robert Redford in All Is Lost — is also under consideration in the American premiere of I Am the Wind, by the Norwegian playwright Jon Fosse, at 59E59 Theaters. In this existential acting exercise of a play, directed by Paul Takacs, Mr. Fosse puts two men in a boat, instead of just one. But two, in this case, isn’t necessarily company. In Mr. Fosse’s world, conversation is no guarantee of connection.

    A gloomy two-hander from Norway sails into 59E59 Theaters.

    Zachary Stewart

    January 17, 2014: Nothing says January in New York like a theatrical meditation on death by hypothermia. That's what audiences are in for when they go see Norwegian playwright Jon Fosse's I Am The Wind at 59E59 Theaters. This US premiere is directed by Paul Takacs, artistic director of The Shop. One part poem and one part dramatic painting, I Am the Wind is 100 percent depressing (for a variety of reasons).

    Ryan Hudak on I Am The Wind as presented by The Shop

    Ryan Hudak

    January 17, 2014: When the lights come up for Jon Fosse’s dreamlike play I Am The Wind, two men are wrapped in each other’s arms and entirely soaked in water. I Am The Wind tells the story of the one (Christopher Tierney) and the other (Louis Butteli) as they navigate the sea in a small boat. The one seems antsy and suicidal, constantly pushing the other to look at the world for what it is. The other is a nervous and kind man who fears for his shipmate and tries to bring him out of his funk. As the day goes on and the weather worsens, the two men argue their worldviews, until their relationship takes a brutal turn.

    A Wind of Disappointment

    Dmitry Zvonkov

    January 17, 2014: Having seen some months ago Paul Takacs’s outstanding staging of a two-character play called Tender Napalm, I was very much looking forward to watching his imagining of Jon Fosse’s enigmatic two-character play I Am the Wind (adapted into English by Simon Stephens). Unfortunately, as tight and inspired as his direction of Napalm was, that is how sloppy and unfocused it feels in his current offering.
