“My father was struggling to find me…because he had forgotten my last name. It’s not even a difficult one aye. Well, I guess if you’re gone for long enough, your daughter’s name could escape you. Funny that…”
The 2019 Toi Wāhine Festival is proud to present the premiere of up-and-coming artist Cian Gardner’s one-woman play Sorry For Your Loss.
Sorry For Your Loss is a fresh new take on the everlasting journey of figuring out who you are.
This one-woman show was written and is performed by exciting up-and-coming artist, Cian Gardner. It is her story of growing up, and explores the effects of having a sometimes-there-mostly-not Dad.
A devised piece, the story is told through a combination of naturalistic scenes as well as physical storytelling. Cian occupies the stage as multiple characters, her mother, her father, herself in the past and present.
A raw and real performance, Sorry For Your Loss sees Gardner opens up to audiences and expose something she never thought she needed to revisit, in this story about the strength of a woman; and the gift of strength from one woman to another.
