OASIS, the award-winning monodrama by Amir Peter tells the story of Noel, a young Frenchman who, in the 1950s, was sent for reserve military duty to the sand dunes of Algeria. He is faced with moral and ethical dilemmas, which bring him to embark on a surreal and dangerous journey through the Sahara Desert.
The year is 1956. Paris, the City of Lights, is still recovering from World War II. The dresses grow short, and chansons fill the air. Noel, an artist, is living his dreams in Paris. He lives in Montmartre, sketches on the banks of the Seine, and falls in love. At war, far from his homeland, he is met with moral dilemmas that lead him to do or die. This is the story of a man who has agreed to lose everything, so as not to lose himself.
