THE WOMAN WHO TURNED INTO A TREE // SEARCHING FOR BEING

THE WOMAN WHO TURNED INTO A TREE // SEARCHING FOR BEING

Part of New Nordics festival

Overview

THE WOMAN WHO TURNED INTO A TREE
In the absence of anything meaningful in her life, Daphne worships her own appearance and social status, defining herself through class, money and men. But when Daphne is forced to move out of her box-sized city centre room, she has to relocate to a cheaper alternative in the not-so-cool outskirts of town. Her new flat sports a fir tree by the window… that begins to talk to her.

The Woman Who Turned Into a Tree is a one-woman play about the destructive obsession with other people’s opinions and materialism, loneliness and class.

SEARCHING FOR BEING (staged reading)
A nightmare of a fairy-tale, Searching for Being embodies a woman’s struggle with depression through a series of vivid poems. We join her on a journey through the dark, examining a universal issue many of us face on a daily basis. Exploring the musical and poetical tradition of the Faroe Islands, Searching for Being is a staged reading based on real events, featuring live music.

Please Note this performance will start with a staged reading of Searching for Being, followed by a short break. It will then continue with the The Woman Who Turned Into A Tree.
