STO Union / Nadia Ross

What Happened to the Seeker?

Part of "The Power of Powerlessness"


English /  2,5 h (incl. intermission)

Seekers were youth who went out into the world in the 1960s to find spiritual fulfillment. This is a story of a child of the Seekers and her search to recapture a moment of well-being from her childhood. A multi-faceted production exploring a woman’s attempt at living in this world. STO Union’s newest production truly challenges the ways in which narratives can be told within the boundaries of a stage. The story is told in three different mediums: an exhibition, a video and a performance.

Production: STO Union. Coproduction: Festival Transamériques, The Theatre Centre (Toronto), Bit Teatergarasjen (Bergen), Brut (Wien). In collaboration with Wakefield Art Collective.
