Lost in Translation: A Bilingual Journey

From 4 to 28 August 2017

Lost in Translation

A Bilingual Journey


What happens in the mind of a bilingual person?

Inspired by true events from the last three decades, the story follows heroine Marion through this coming of age tale that flirts with pop culture references and stereotypes while challenging our (mis-)conceptions about identity, home and communication. A hybrid piece about and beyond boundaries: performed in four languages (Occitan, French, English, and Gaelic), it playfully mixes comedy with physical theatre, storytelling with puppets and above all fantasy with reality.

Accessible and understandable regardless of which language you speak!

4-28 August at 4.00PM
