“I return to the place where I was born, and realize that it is no longer home”
Eight women follow the thread of history and the bloodlines that brought each of them to this land, to this moment in their journeys towards home. Is home a house? Is home a “homeland?”
Their offering: eight recipes for transforming our solitudes and an invitation to sit at the table.
Inspired by the women of Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude, The Solitudes is a provocative, humorous, and visually charged experimental performance that conjures the many forces of separation that have overtaken our lives.
This is a protest. This is an act of claiming space. This is a call to action: because a house can be invaded, but home can never be taken away.
Runtime: 90 minutes
