Exactly 100 years after the end of the First World war we will be examining the borders of the future. Come and watch and listen to our new story: Ladies’ Choice.
Ladies’ Choice is a conversation between my mother, a friend and I about being an expat, setting boundaries, fighting old patterns and the sea. How do we carry our past into our future? Which smells, sounds and images travel with us?
We will be performing in a military bunker right on the edge of the sea. It will be a totally unique experience – a one time only experience.

Ladies’ choice: A performance about displacement, decolonising your past and looking at the borders of the future.
For this performance Rona Kennedy enters into dialogue with her mother and her friend Lola. They talk about drawing lines in the sand, shaking scorpions out of your shoes, learning new languages and unpacking boxes. They dance, sing and ask questions to the sea. They are digging for memories, self justifications and blind spots. They are expats, but exactly does that mean?
This performance is part of Migrating Dialogues, a story-project about migration, power and privilege. The makers invite you to share stories and so join a collective process of thinking about displacement, decolonisation and taboo.
