"Irén Griguca, (who should be Bernadette) is a half-Gypsy, half-Hungarian girl who grew up in an orphanage in Romania. She was born on the same day, at the same hour, at the same minute, when Nasa launches Voyager 1 from Cape Canaveral with the aim of exploring the unexplored space to find answers to what all this good wondering really is. Irene Griguca, (who should be Bernadette) after the fall of the Ceaușescu regime, like Voyager, sets off into her own void to find answers to what all this really is. But to find the answers, like Voyager1, she must leave her own universe behind and venture out into the unknown interstellar space. A space where past and present, reality and the unseen, and answers and questions collide." - reads the synopsis of the performance.
