"Lost In Lvov" at the 2015 SOULO Theatre Festival
LOST IN LVOV
Sunday May 24 - 7pm
Red Sandcastle Theatre, 922 Queen St E
Creator/Performer: Sandy Simona
Director: Marina McClure
Lighting Designer: Shelly Rodriguez
LOST IN LVOV brings to life several generations of an educated Jewish family as it transitions from the former Soviet Union to a new life in America, which is often overwhelming, often hilarious, always meaningful. They find joy in keeping some old customs and adapting to new ones--or resisting them. The family maintains its spirit and traditions throughout the stories; that are held together by music and Gypsy dance, and a tour de force whirlwind performance by the beneficiary of her family's rich history, the young actress who enters the arts despite the entreaties to enter a more sensible profession.
Sandy Simona is an interdisciplinary, multimedia artist & storyteller. Her award winning solo show, LOST IN LVOV, has performed nationally, awarded Best Satire (featured in American Theatre Magazine) at United Solo Festival in New York City, 2014, and combined artform's Producers Encore Award at The Hollywood Fringe Festival 2014 in Los Angeles. Recently, she has been invited to perform LVOV in Warsaw, Poland as part of United SOLO EUROPE. LOST IN LVOV has recently been published on INDIE THEATRE NOW. Sandy's writing, choreography and devised work has been shared and performed nationally at The Guthrie Theater (TIME SENSITIVE Directed by Marcela Lorca) , The California Institute of the Arts, and Highways Performance Space, and Internationally at The Au Brana Cultural Centre and The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
"Simona is a woman filled with introspective, exuberant joy that when voiced and sung aloud is infectious from the moment you walk into the house..." - Gia On The Move (Los Angeles)
