A Cockroach's Tarantella and Zolle may be performed as an evening-length diptych.
In Zolle (It., big chunk of earth), a dead woman is a land-watcher. She wanders through the shadowy space between memory and reality, tracing the lines of her identity through the land she once walked: an immigrant in death as in life. In her haunted travels between the worlds of life and the afterlife, she is unable to choose between the living and the dead, at a loss to let go of either. Finally, with her sorrows, solitudes, and peacefulness, she lets go of both, turning into a part of the earth.
