About the Event

Through storytelling, physical theatre, and visual elements, Shapeshifting explores what happens when one is forced to negotiate two cultures, while not identifying with either. Which parts of a migrant’s identity are lost together with their native language? Entertaining, tender, and at times brimming with anger, Shapeshifting tells a story of resilience and women’s empowerment through a fragmented narrative interrupted by comedy, music, and a "WRONG WORD" alarm

Written and performed by Lara Parmiani

Directed by Becka McFadden

Design: Anna Tická
