In Ancient Greece, Icarus has never left the tower that imprisons him and his father. But every day he wakes, and stares at the sun, desperate to join it in the sky. In World War Two Kenya, prisoner of war, Felice Benuzzi, is dying of boredom. But then the rain clears, and he sees the stunning peak of Mount Kenya, and he makes a vow to climb it. And in modern day Egham, a young man named Arthur – caught in the grip of his declining mental health – is just trying to finish a painting.
The Sun, The Mountain, and Me is a new solo show that melds ancient myth and historical anecdote with emotive storytelling to explore art, freedom, and the mistakes we make when searching for escape.
