Naomi’s Flight is a one woman aerial performance about aging and elder care that takes place on three asymmetrical suspended steel sculptures. Written and performed by Mara Neimanis, directed by Bryce Butler, sculptures by Tim Scofield, Naomi’s Flight reveals the love story of George, an 80 year old care giver, and his wife Naomi who has diabetes and been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Naomi’s Flight is a powerful, personal, poetic, and humorous, journey into the courageous and upside down world of day to day living with these epidemic diseases and the inverted healthcare system that is in place to do so. Neimanis combines text with aerial choreography in creating environments, characters, and time.
