Director: Reinhard Göber
Country: Austria – EnglishSYNOPSIS
A reflection about modern – day solitude Leaving Ziller Valley tells the story of the young Tyrolean manager Elizabeth. Alienated and lost from jet-setting between high-end hotels from Paris to Shangai, she decides to stay in New York. Maybe in this city full of dreamers, she can find what she is looking for: a place that she can call home and where she can ultimately find herself. “Leaving Ziller Valley revolves around the German conceptual term “Heimat” (plainly defined as the relationship one may have to a particular place) and explores its meaning through a dramatic, vibrant and energetic theatrical presentation. The performance also displays a personal quest for identity, emotional security, and a sense of belonging and purpose, away from the comfort of one’s home. It shows how relativity comes with a term or a word being understood differently across regions, and how several elements beyond physical or spacial environment constitute “home.
