"With this year's Wildside offering I am pleased to continue to introduce Centaur audiences to bold experimental theatre. This has always been what Wildside is at its core, and it allows Centaur to encourage and support theatre creators from a great diversity of backgrounds in our community. It is a privilege to work closely with innovative artists that are creating unconventional theatre; theatre that challenges its audience and explores deeply personal yet worldly ideas and issues. We are thrilled to continue our collaboration with La Chapelle Scènes Contemporaines for a fourth consecutive year."
Rose Plotek, Wildside Curator

About the show

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues, this short piece narrates a woman’s fear, rage, love, and despair, the need for balance, and the question of survival.
