Rosie and Ildikó perform citizenship catwalks to live music, in a multilingual exploration of European identity.
In 2019, Zoo Indigo embarked on an odyssey across Europe; searching for cultural identity along the shores of the Danube in Budapest; crossing the Irish sea, retracing ancestral footsteps to the docks of Dún Laoghaire. Emerging from the shadows of Brexit, they listened for echoes of belonging in the streets of Berlin.
Collecting memories, dances and lyrics along the way, their journey now brings them to their final call: Auditioning for a motherland. In Don’t Leave Me This Way, the duo desperately perform their lost European identity, accompanied by live music from Rob Rosa and digital projections by Barret Hodgson.
The performance is a humorous and provocative exploration of cultural heritage, as the performers grieve the loss of identity, home, and mourn ‘nul points’ in the Eurovision song contest.
