Rootlost

This dynamic, autobiographical solo performance tells the moving story of a search for a lost identity. Told in English and Polish, from Magdalena's unique perspective as both insider and outsider, Rootlost delves into the interwoven histories of a fragmented family and a country in transition.

A debut autobiographical solo performance. Rootlost is a bilingual one-woman play about the paradox of being from a place but not belonging there. It uses translation, sound, voice-over and live performance to tell the story of the unique circumstances that took a normal, small-town Polish girl halfway across the world to a country with palm trees instead of pine trees and sandstorms instead of snowstorms.

Told in both English and Polish, from the point of view of a child, it traces changing identity through the use of recorded sound, storytelling and movement.
