Don’t Leave Me This Way  is a concert that never quite happens. 

In 2019, Zoo Indigo embarked on an odyssey across Europe; searching for cultural identity along the shores of the Danube in Budapest; crossing the Irish sea retracing ancestral footsteps to the docks of Dun Laoghaire.

Emerging from the shadow of Brexit, they listened for echoes of cultural belonging in the streets of Berlin. Collecting stories, folk dances and lyrics along the way, their journey now brings them to their final call: auditioning for a motherland.

In Don’t Leave Me This Way, the duo perform a series of citizenship catwalks to live music from Rob Rosa and digital projections by Barret Hodgson.

This contemporary performance spoken in English with German and Hungarian is a concert that never quite happens, grieving the loss of identity, home and the Eurovision Song Contest, in a playful and provocative exploration of cultural belonging.
