The play “it felt empty when the heart went at first but it’s alright now” by popular English playwright Lucy Kirkwood has premiered at Koko this autumn. It is the heartbreaking story of young Dijana, who is forced to work as a prostitute, her dreams and hopes. Kirkwood interviewed many sex workers when she was writing the play in 2009. KokoTeatteri is similarly producing the play with Pro-tukipiste, which is a NGO for sex workers’ rights in society.

 

The play is translated and directed by Anna Veijalainen. Dijana is played by Anna Andersson, a graduate of the National Academy of Theatre in St.Petersburg.
