About this show

Damiel, a guardian angel, is weary of his eternal existence observing and cataloging the ways of mankind. When he falls in love with a lonely trapeze artist, he resolves to sacrifice his wings and his immortality to join her on earth -- and to taste human life. Based on Wim Wenders' unforgettable film, Wings of Desire is about the borders, visible and invisible, that divide us -- borders between East and West, between angels and people, between two human beings. The show is adapted by Gideon Lester, Ko van den Bosch, and Ola Mafaalani and directed by Ola Mafaalani. Schedule: November 28, 29, 30, December 3, 5, 6, 7, 10, 12, 13, 14 at 7:30pm December 1, 8, 9, 15, 16 at 8pm November 25, 26 December 3, 9, 10, 16, 17 at 2pm.
