Watch a dark and lyrical tale of migration, homelessness and obsession from Croatian writer Danaja Wass at this year’s VAULT Festival.
Croatian writer Danaja Wass uses her own experience of being an immigrant in Ireland as a starting point to weave together the lyrical and poignant story of A.A, who is moving from a remote Eastern European country to the promised land of Guinness.
Despite reassurances that she’ll do well, she quickly finds herself Sans-Home. As her situation and mental health deteriorate, her desperate search for friendship results in an obsession with dire consequences. With record high numbers of rough sleepers reported in both London and Ireland in 2019, NOTCH is a timely look at what we try not to see.
Danaja Wass is a Croatian writer and actor. Her short play Stella premiered at the Black Box Theatre in Dublin, and her acting credits include How I Helped End Communism (Samuel Beckett Theatre Dublin), and Anthony and Cleopatra (Theatre 36). Wass met The Thelmas at their womxn writers’ group, Weapons of Mass Creation.
