Sometimes you need to get away. Get away from it all. Go it alone and sail away.

Sail Away With Me takes place on an old, oak boat that theater director Tormod Carlsen and scenographer Heidi Dalene have restored in collaboration with their associates. After 30 years on land the boat is seaworthy once again, but now as a theater boat.

This is the third and final one-person theater in the series «In The End We Are All Alone». In this series, Carlsen and Dalene make small theater experiences for one audience member at a time. The work is inspired by outmoded theatrical traditions, street fair amusements and ways of thinking about architecture. This time they explore the boat as found architecture, as well as historical theater traditions that used boats as entertainment ships and travelling theaters.

The pull of the sea and new horizons is wrapped in a mystique of freedom and escape, but also loneliness and longing for community. Life at sea is the theatrical, spatial and social context of this piece, or what Carlsen refers to as its life form. Welcome aboard to a meditation on the sea and a poetic journey into the unknown.
