Project summary

‘Unsettled’ is a participatory performance project centred on human migration patterns and identity. It explores the process of uprooting to settle somewhere new and the notion of feeling unsettled by unfamiliar people, places, customs and traditions. The project will take place in Rocca di Mezzo, London, Kyiv and the Canary Islands, where transience and migration are urgent social issues. ‘Unsettled’ will explore how identities are constructed and transformed by movement. The residency brings together four international theatre festivals to support the development of artist Simone Tetrault. The leading festival partner is Teatro in Quota (Italy) and the supporting festival partners are Volta Festival (UK), Lacuna Festivals (Spain) and GogolFest (Ukraine).

Biography: Simone Tetrault is a Barcelona-based Asian American creator of integrity-driven cross-disciplinary performances whose process is deeply rooted in care for the weight of the work, those who help make it, and those who receive it. Her work combines theatre, dance, film and the digital arts, and explores the connection of the individual to social, political and technological events. Simone’s work has been featured in SEISMA Magazine, OnStage Blog, Womxn Artists, and LAFPI’s Women of Fringe series and has been presented in the United States at the National Women’s Theatre Festival, FIGMENT Festivals, Abrons Arts Center, Access Theatre, THEATERLAB, Griffith Observatory, Japanese American National Museum, Zephyr Theatre, Odyssey Theatre, and DURDENANDRAY. Simone’s 2020 dance short Letters to the Universe was presented at the Lacuna Festival in Spain. An alumna of IDC’s Consent in Academia workshop, Directors Lab West and Directors Lab Mediterranean, Simone was a 2021 recipient of the Hollywood Fringe Festival Scholarship and Producer’s Encore Award for Vice and a 2022 resident artist of Volta Festival’s New Encounters: Six Experiments in Co-creation in London supported by the European Cultural Foundation’s i-Portunus mobility fund.
