Olga, the cabaret diva extraordinaire!...well...sort of.
This is the bittersweet tale of an eccentric old lady impatiently waiting the return of a family member. Told through Olga’s slightly distorted perspective Miss Olga takes us through the emotional and laugh-out-loud journey of her life.
Jenni articulates Olga’s memories with mime, silhouettes, clown, and circus. In amidst the flurries of feathers and fervent flames, Olga bears her underlying loneliness with a hopeful smile that consistently plucks at our heartstrings.
With fire-eating and marsh-mellow breathing, Miss Olga treads the line between comedy and sorrow.
Miss Olga is the perfect example of exciting wordless story-telling.
