Scene 1 “(Place)nta” an all-female dance theatre piece following the journey of a group of women who learn the difference between freedom and survival whilst trying to preserve their identity in a new home.
Scene 2 M(other) T(on)gu(e)” A theatre forum piece where the cast investigate a feeling of displacement when exploring the question “where are you from?” Join the cast for an interactive discussion afterwards.
Scene 3 S(we)ar D(own) Inn(it)” When being outcasted becomes norm, embodying the underground energy empowers us to write ourselves into history wherever we end up.
The performance is followed by an interactive discussion with the cast.
Cast and collaborators: This piece functions with a rotating collaborative element, no performance is alike nor are the people in it. Each year the energy stays the same and the cast have one goal: to leave a part of themselves in the work for the next as it takes a village to raise this child. I cannot thank each and every one of you for your honesty and bravery in every rehearsal process this would not exist without you. Literally. Words do not suffice, NLA is endlessly grateful.
