What happens to a childhood memory when its owner grows older and moves to another country? In Genya a true story of a 7 years old lier’s summer adventure in Tel Aviv find its new form in Finland of this moment. Genya is a performance by Ishmael Falke, which was performed in 2010 in Turku and Rovaniemi. The actions of remembering and telling happen in a big dumpster, and tools for storytelling are found from the garbage and from the pockets. Objectiveness is sought and then being left unneeded.
