"Cilla Veronica Back Das Waite suchen..."

Hedda Kage, Cilla Veronica Back – Looking for
the Wideness
, in "Finnisches Theater" - 2009 Sonderausgabe auf Deutsch

"A nomad can be recognized by the footprints she leaves behind,
while she herself since a long time has moved along.

Cilla Veronica Back is such a nomad of European Theatre, not bound to a house, not bound to a cultural area, not bound to idols.

She goes her own way, somewhere beside the mainstream, like detached of its magnetism, more in a state of stubborn denial of its offers."
