...When I finally arrive, tired and older, I drop my luggage, I fall into the soft bed and close my eyes. But before I peacefully fall asleep, I revisit again and again the fragments of my journey.
A slight sadness comes over me, and it seems to me that this long day is over, perhaps a bit too quickly…
Inspired by the simplicity and speed with which extraordinary people can leave us - be they a great artist or a granny from next door - and based on numerous travel notes scribbled down and saved from over the years, this piece articulates with great tenderness and humour the solitude of those who, as they travel towards the end of their lives, dwell more and more within the reality and comfort of their memories.
Growing up and working within a well-known, multi-generational Russian theatrical family, Polina created this award-winning work in 2009 and has since performed it around the world to significant acclaim. This manipulate performance is GO!’s UK premiere.
