Some things in life can only be sung. With this premise, Wende's first international performance The Promise was born: a churning, painfully honest, intimate and at the same time combative show. Wende found inspiration in the age-old tradition and the great diversity that characterises the English writing landscape. In 2020, she left for London and joined forces with five female writing talents at the renowned The Royal Court Theatre. The result became a moving, modern song cycle about identity, origins and being a woman.
