A performance about the story of the flood. While the whole world is sinking, an ark is struggling with the waves. Thoughtful Noah, his children and grandchildren, along with dozens of animals, not only domestic but also wild, are traveling and fighting for survival.
They do not only have to cope with the waves, but at times, also, with the relationships they have one with the other. In the confined space of the ark, the roommates clash and reconcile, become angry and forgive, disagree and cooperate, get disappointed and hope. They get to know the others and themselves better. They also wonder about a lot of things: nature, our place in it, history and what we can learn by it, being open to new things. Although they rarely get a satisfactory answer, they learn to raise questions and to recognize the value of the journey.
As Stella Mihailidou, the director of the performance notes, “Noah’s Family
” is: “a play full of energy, tenderness and humour. A play for children and adults alike, that reflects our world, our relationships, our lives”.
