One Hand on the Sky

‘One Hand on the Sky’ is a 3 act show intended to showcase an interwoven world suddenly overcome with a wave of nationalism. A mix of comedy, spoken word and general frustration at the state of current affairs, the show details one girl’s navigation through deciding which of her nationalities to keep, as she has recently turned 21 and is being forced to give up two of her three passports. The show includes shorts from a UN sponsored documentary on migration and diasporan identity.
