Wajdi Mouawad, the author of the Le Sang des Promesses series, consisting of Coast (1997), Fires (2003), Forests (2006) and Skies (2009), considers how we can be ourselves again when we have not used our mother tongue for a long time. A solo performance, a path for feeling, listening, waiting and watching, by the writer himself.
