One small Girl.
One BIG decision.
Zee is waiting- in fact, she just can’t wait any longer. She, like everyone else in her society, is destined to tread, and keep treading, for the rest of her life. In this world entirely constructed by the illusion of binary choices, follow the wanderings of Zee Sparkwad as she penetrates the reality she became all too familiar with upon discovering her ‘agency’.
This is a fast-paced physical theatre show set in a dystopic, science-fiction universe, with original music suitable for all ages.
Performer, writer, director, composer – Julienne Restall
Julienne is a Maltese performer whose interest lies in devised, ensemble work that generates original content through play. She draws on the techniques of Jacques Lecoq, having recently trained with Complicité on their Mudlarks: Young Devisers Programme with the Barbican, Catherine Alexander, Manifesto Poetico and Temper Theatre.
She currently studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s Contemporary Performance Arts BA with the backing of the Malta Arts Scholarship Scheme.
Julienne is also an associate artist of The New Victorians Company, a Malta-based group that generates new music-theatre. Their show ‘MARA’ debuted at VAULT Festival in 2019, and transferred to the Pleasance for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

On Shifting Ground is part of Into the New 2024, a festival of contemporary performance made in Glasgow. Into the New showcases the work by the final year BA (Hons) Contemporary Performance Practice students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
