The Love of the Fireflies

Scratch Performance

This performance of Mexican writer Alejandro Ricaño’s new play will take you on a journey all the way from Norway to Mexico City and Guatemala. A modern odyssey about a girl searching for her identity: what defines who we are, who we love, what makes us happy.

Full of humour and wit, Ricaño’s play is about a young girl’s journey into womanhood, chasing answers about relationships, sex and love as she realises how nothing is constant in one’s life.

Dream-like and surreal, and yet so full of truths, this is a celebration and an experience of life’s intermittent beautiful lights.

HOME presents this in-development production of the play’s UK premiere.

Emily Louizou is the founder and artistic director of Collide Theatre and has been working as a theatre director, writer, choreographer and performer for the past 10 years in both Greece and the UK.
