“The Journey of a Warlike Mind sees Ana Luiza Ulsig push the boundaries of artistic expression to deliver a vibrant, comedically-rich and affecting feminist exposé” Ask The Ushers ★★★★
A BATTLE. HEALING. FORGIVENESS. LOVE.
A thought-provoking play about how family and social structures mold us into misshapen beings, and how trauma can become one’s own salvation.
Rose rises from the dead. She alerts for an imminent war, for the extreme necessity of transformation of a woman’s soul, a woman who has stopped feeling. She has the key to the mind of Eva, our heroine, and her many facets that battle throughout the play.
“A heartfelt and very physical piece of theatre (…) Impressive in its realisation” Broadway World
A woman who’s not afraid of laughing of her fortunes and misfortunes and who’s not afraid to express her child self with proud joy and to dive headfirst into the depth of the jungle that is our soul. The hardest journey of them all: from the mind to the bottom of the heart.
“Ulsig’s flare for comedy and her skill with multi-rolling is given its deserving spotlight.” Within Her Words
Based on a true episode of a mental breakdown, occurred during the impeachment process of Brazil’s first female president, Dilma Rouseff, in 2016, “The Journey of a Warlike Mind” deals with the inherent tension in the relationships between all the voices that live inside our minds, and establishes an up-to-date discussion on gender on a deep and intimate level.
The Journey of a Warlike Mind is, above all, about change, transformation and transcendental hope, “ultimately showing to the audience what lies behind the surface and spurring them to want more.” Broadway World
The Journey of a Warlike Mind is at The Actors Centre 30th March to 1st April 2020. Tickets are on sale here.
