In a nutshell

A performance that came out of a 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. ‘In a nutshell’ 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.
