Where and who is this missing girl? What does she want from us? Is it a myth, a dream or is it all too real?

We are very privileged to have secured FREE tickets to this unique experience for our audience, so the spots are limited and the demand is high.

“I loved that piece and am most grateful to you for bringing it into English and other languages. It is socially powerful and wonderfully experimental. It moved me and allowed me to feel most grateful for feminist art projects that link our rage with solidarity.” – Judith Butler
