Have you ever wondered what happens when you put something in a safe place and then you cannot find it? You were certain that was the place, but did you really lose them or were you certain you put them somewhere safe? Meet Losha, a magical creature, who likes to collect things, small things, important things, things that have been forgotten. She will share the memories of half remembered stories and bring forgotten dreams to life in a delicate world of light and shadows.
To encounter Losha you must enter her world, a place of contrasts, soft and hard, curved and sharp, up and down, light and dark. She uncovers fragments of memories held in long discarded objects.
A shoe holds the memory of a tragic love story, a teddy bear holds a child’s fear of the dark, a grain of sand carries the freedom of a midnight swim.
With a gentle nod to The Borrowers, this show is a feast for the senses filled with poetry and dance, shadow play, puppetry and projection. Losha is a rich and thoughtful play that captures the heart and stirs the memory.
‘Losha’ features at The Source Arts Centre on Saturday, April 5th (2pm & 4pm). Tickets €8 (€24 for a family of four).
