Where are you from, girl is a performance that uses musical and narrative means to address the question of personal division. The division between two continents, between two places and between two people - between two selves. The actress performs for the audience, wants to charm, seduce and entertain them, but at the same time it slowly becomes apparent that what she represents is fake. Her intimacy thus penetrates to the surface, collapsing the strictly defined structure of the concert and
thereby displacing the image that the actress presents (to herself and to others).
With her voice and through the use of various musical genres, she looks for potential cracks in the established forms, expectations, even clichés. She juxtaposes a series of dualities, connects, differentiates and resolves them. She explores what is truly hers and what belongs to others. What it means to simply be (available) – not only as an actor but also as a human being? When, if ever, does the need to belong disappear? She narrates about (perhaps fake?) events and changes from a poised
young woman into all her faces, including an insecure girl. She searches for her own voice, her own song, and thus the answer to the question of where are you from, girl.
