Soula Notos tells expressive, energetic and poetic stories full of self-mockery about growing up with different labels, and how to deal with them without losing your mind.
Soula is a Dutch -Greek comedian, actress, theatermaker and storyteller who has written her first long theatrical piece “Who are you when no one is looking”, which was a great success at the
International Storytelling Festival Amsterdam.
It’s a recount of not only a personal journey, but also a universal story about trying to find your place under the sun. Who decides if you belong to a group or not? What do you really know about another person? And why does one person dance like crazy and the other needs to have 3 drinks before something starts moving at all. In other words: in which stories do you live? What stories did they tell you at home? What did your parents whisper in your ear when you were afraid? Who are you when no one is looking?
Intimate insight and very humorous.
Beautiful, fast, intimate and wild.
Touching, recognisable and personal.
