Following a hugely successful run at the Edinburgh Festival in 2018, multi-award-winning theatre company, Two Destination Language will visit the MAC on 11 May with a powerful one-woman performance, Fallen Fruit.
Based on the real-life memories of Bulgarian performer Katherina Radeva, Fallen Fruit is a beautiful and captivating story of love, breaking free and Europe, set in 1989 against the backdrop of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Told by a seven-year-old girl, a couple in turmoil and a sharp-tongued 80s game show host, all played by Katherina, Fallen Fruit tells the story of Bulgaria’s acceleration away from its past in the communist bloc, into the uncertain future of today.
As Britain prepares to leave the EU and across Europe people celebrate the 30th anniversary of the end of the Cold War, the story takes us back to another society on the brink of change.
Described as “evocative and full of insight”, Fallen Fruit is a show about complex choices, barriers and walls in our minds and in our cities.
Katherina, together with dramaturgy expert, Alister Lownie make up Two Destination Language, with Alister’s Scottish heritage and Katherina’s Bulgarian background informing their visually rich and stimulating work.
