Fragile

Fragile is about a self-assured and powerful woman who “doesn't need anyone”. When lost in the middle of the mountains, this woman realizes that she got it all wrong. In order to survive, she has to go back, get rid of all the layers that she is unnecessarily wearing, and admit that asking for help is her way out. Vulnerability, breakthroughs, empowerment, and new beginnings.

The story, based on real-life experiences, follows an independent and strong woman who, in a dangerous and deadly situation is scared of being vulnerable and admitting that she needs help. She tries to keep up the appearance of power until she realizes that there's nothing wrong with being fragile. The show explores this transition and it's filled with breakthroughs while revisiting moments of her past that have influenced her present behavior. It also touches on the topics of loneliness disguised with independence and its consequences.

Interview with The New Current

Did you have any apprehensions about writing and performing in a piece that draws from you own experiences?



I firmly believe that writing from your own experience is the best thing you can do. It feels authentic, unique, whole, surprising, and gratifying. I used my experience as an inspiration and then I went deeper. Not everything you will see in the show happened in real life. I took reality and I made it even more honest. I investigated what was underneath the surface and I decided to be brave enough to share it in my story. Click Here For Article

Interview for "Always Time for the Theatre

I’m glad to here it. So “Fragile” is your first solo show following previous theatre and film projects, and it sounds like it comes from a very personal place for you. What influenced you to bring this story to the stage?

Fragile came so organically and effortlessly to me. I found myself writing things that were coming from my heart, in a non-judgemental and cathartic way. I didn’t know at the beginning that I was writing a one-woman show. I was simply allowing what was in my heart to be put on paper. It was later when I was re-reading my notes that I came to realise that I had a story to tell. A one-woman show felt like the perfect medium for it. Click Here For Article

And now you are returning to the stage!!! How exciting! What are you looking forward to the most?

The adrenaline of live performances! I live for that feeling. And also the response from the audience and the connection with them. Seeing how my show impacts on every person that has decided to give me one hour of their time. The public renews everyday and the audience’s energy is different on every show. That keeps me proactive, fresh and expectant. It’s a challenge I happily accept. Click Here For Article
