”Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn't be done.”
Amelia Earhart is the greatest aviatrix, heroine and forerunner of the history. Amelia Earhart believed in the impossible and was never afraid. We all admire Amelia Earhart. In 1937, when Amelia Earhart disappeared during her circumnavigational flight of the globe, she left the world with a huge Amelia-Earhart-shaped hole.
Missing Amelia Earhart is a solo performance by Merja Pöyhönen. A blurred portrait of the creator’s visual double, the story gives us a peculiar explanation to one of the most mysterious disappearances of all time. This airy and somewhat humoristic play follows the footsteps of Amelia Earhart - the most important person in the world - with longing and admiration.
