Gertrudis is a solitaire game of live sound and dance for an adventurous performer. Innovative in its use of performance languages, the work merges sound installation with dance theatre show. In a blend of humour, lightness and strong atmospheric experiences Gertrudis stages a performer trying to find her role in a one-man-show set-up.
“Louise Mochia is a striking performer with stage presence to spare. Dressed in designer black on a chess board floor that was home to a trio of microphones, the set-up for Gertrudis looked intriguing, like a glossy magazine fashion shoot awaiting the arrival of the photographer” (Keith Watson. Resolution! review 2010)
