ACFNY RECOMMENDS | THEATER
LEAVING ZILLER VALLEY
SATURDAY, NOV 02 2013, 07:30 PM
The Austrian Cultural Forum is pleased to recommend this performance of Julia Rosa Stöckl’s Leaving Ziller Valley, within the framework of the UNITED SOLO Festival in New York City.
Leaving Ziller Valley tells the story of the young Tyrolean executive Elizabeth. Feeling alienated and lost in a world of jet-setting between high-end hotels from Paris to Shanghai, she decides to stay in New York. Maybe in this city full of dreamers, she can find what she is looking for: a place that she can call home and where she can ultimately find herself.
The play is a reflection on modern society and the struggle for the individual to create a home in a globalized, modern world. Inspired by European and American theatre traditions, Leaving Ziller Valley creates a new version of post-modern theatre. A rebellious, funny and nostalgic declaration of love to this journey called life. The play is a nod to Frank Castorf and Peter Brook, and a mix of non-verbal, psychological theater, performance art, and Austrian humor.
