a woman in a giant unnamed city comes home after a night at work. she lives alone in an apartment – “my insides shaped externally in lines and corners”.

through windows is one woman’s dialogue in the hours she has to herself between shifts as a coat-check in a restaurant.

through windows is written and performed by susana lei’ataua, who is currently appearing on-screen in TV3’s The Strip as choreographer samara.

when the first season of The Strip had finished shooting, susana spent the recent new zealand summer visiting family and friends in new york where she once lived.

through windows was written during this visit.

“it was an opportunity to observe and be reminded of the isolation imposed by, required of, and designed into big city living.”
