Today, in an unnamed group, it’s the woman’s turn to speak.

In an intimate and participatory solo performance, you are whisked back to 1999. As one woman encounters her younger self, the fear that surrounded Y2K, one large marine creature, and the soundscape of who she once was, you are asked to become responsive and responsible as she confronts her imagined past and reconciles her feelings of “hiraeth”– a longing for home.

Part of the SummerWorks Presentations programming – offering you a snapshot of contemporary performance in 2019. A vital collection of new theatre, dance, music, and live art works from across the country.
