"Wherever you go, there you are."

I'm a sucker for projection mapping, so it was really great to see this being used throughout the show. I would have liked to have seen it used a bit more, but I appreciate the fact it was there and helped to build on the set.
Aliki Tsakoumi has such a bright, positive energy, it's almost contagious. I love that she was excited about telling the story, and that she could laugh at herself and be okay with making mistakes. She made some great points about home and what we mean by that word, and it did make me reflect on my own home and what I consider to be my cozy place.
Shoutout to her one audience member and boyfriend Trausti for being so supportive. It was great to have that element in there of an audience, no matter how small. The participation Tsakoumi offered was great, and I loved that she was opening the conversation out to her audience in the room and the people at home. It was nice to feel included in this.
Some things that might need some work was when she walked into shadows and we couldn't see her that well, or when the camera angles jumped around and we missed sections of her acting. Overall, it was a nice take on home, identity, accents, culture and hairbrushes in microphone stands.

Excellent! So much fun and cozy. So easy to identify with that experience of being in a new place.

Her stand up morphs quickly into storytelling, but whilst the joke counts drops off the more mellow tone feels far better suited to her struggle to identify where one truly feels at home.
