In Memory of Leaves
Natasha returned to InTRANSIT in 2016 with another immersive monologue In Memory of Leaves; exploring love amongst the bulldozers from Wornington Green W10 to the camps of Calais. Following her performances in London Natasha then took In Memory of Leaves to Italy to perform at the Keiros Teatro Studio.
'In a park on Portobello Road a blackbird sings wildly. A bulldozer approaches her cherry tree. In 'the Jungle' refugees are evicted from their shacks. The trees shiver in the sand. Thousands squeeze into the north side of the ghetto, where a young Afghani graffiti's London College on the motorway wall. In Portobello a woman searches for her love amongst the rubble of her home. A poetic monologue for people on the move; from Wornington Green to the camps of Calais.'
In Memory of Leaves was supported by Westway Trust, RBKC Arts and the Arts Council England.
