In a nutshell

At the mid point of her DasArts Master of Theatre course Eleana presents her new work, ‘in a nutshell’, a piece that came out of research on gender, identity and sexuality. A work on the personal, a personal work, an attempt to embrace and expose thoughts and needs that a lot of us might potentially share. A performance that crafts text and language, breath and tongue. A piece that deconstructs craft with sincerity and joy. She shares, she’s intimate, she’s awkward and all-inviting.
