Company of Wolves presents a solo work by Anna Porubcansky.

Unbecoming is a performance about loss and rage, told by a woman and a mother.

Rage – at all we become when we don’t have a choice. Loss – of all we haven’t become. And how we unbecome.

Using traditional song, soundscape, myth and movement, Unbecoming is a dream world, a rich and sublime space where image, memory, desire and fear all reside. Watch a woman unravel, layer upon layer stripped away; a human, unmasked.

How much of what we are is what we’ve chosen to be?

There will be a free post-show audience Q&A with Anna immediately after the performance that will last around 20 mins.

"Genuinely powerful… A captivating portrait of a woman caught in the dissonance of contradictory desires"List
"Anna Porubcansky’s… looping and overlaying of recorded layers and real-time vocalisings echo the complex layers of a woman caught in a swithering vortex of choices and desires"Herald
"A solo tour-de-force... Porubcansky cleverly weaves the narrative in an hypnotic way, using beautiful, crystal-clear vocals [and] mesmeric movement... an original and entrancing performance"Glasgow Theatre Blog
