MY FATHER CAN FLY
Livingstones Kabinet return with the continuation of their critically acclaimed performance "Canada"
’MY FATHER KAN FLY’ is Nina Kareis´personal story, exploring what it is like for a child to embrace and trust a parent whose moods are sometimes unbearably heavy and other times infinitely high.
In ’MY FATHER KAN FLY’ we enter a child's experience of an adult's manic episodes and of that which we call madness. Employing a liberal dose of humour - often gallows humour-it is also a declaration of love from a child to a parent and a recollection of a childhood with a father who from time to time seemed to possess superpowers. ’MY FATHER KAN FLY’ also touches on the prejudices, taboos and secrets that exist in many families in which there are people who experience mental disorders.
