A non-verbal mask and mime piece, The Sighlence of Sky is a tender ode to the heart-ache and the love that lives within family bonds, as a family navigates disability and neurodivergence. From creator Anana Rydvald : “The Sighlence of Sky is inspired by my resilient sister who is the innocent constant in our lives in which we reflect back our humanity again and again.”

Anana Rydvald is originally from Denmark, and first came to Montreal to study at Les Grands Ballets Canadiens at the age of 12. Since then she trained as an actress and mask artist in both Europe and Canada and eventually worked as an actress for several years with the renowned Scandinavian Theatre group Cantabile 2 that creates site-specific performances around the world. With her own company Level 4 Theatre she launched her solo performance Section O which won her a MECCA revelation award. Sighlence of Sky won her two METAs award for Best Independent Production and Best Main Performance. She has taught mask work at Cirque du Soleil, as well as at an orphanage in India, and the School of Stage Arts in Denmark. She works as an actress, voice artist and mo-cap performer in Montreal, while teaching Mime and improvisation at John Abbott College.


Rydvald’s craft is spell-binding as she evokes a world of palpable objects and complex emotions. — Jim Burke, The Gazette
