VIVA DIASPORA!

4 - 18 AUGUST 2012

3pm

No Mondays

MOODS MAIN STAGE, 1 GREENSIDE PLACE, EDINBURGH EH1 1AA

Diabola Balsa is a foreign national, arriving in ‘this great big society’ 3-5 years ago, armed only with a Phd in Maritime Studies and a determination to create a new life. Her dealings with the Home Office have been sufficiently complex that she, as well as they, have now lost track of her timeline

Diabola is a vehicle for exploring popular (mis)conceptions about immigration, cultural identity, the media, consumerism, biculturalism, gender, Britishness and the current socio/political framework.

She is two parts satire and three parts entertainment, and condemns orthodox received viewpoints in favor of the diverse + those drawn from reality, yet always striving for beauty, truth and good humor

This performance will appeal to: those with conflicting origins + genesis, outsiders, women, anyone who enjoys satire and subversive entertainment
