Wild Child In The City is Tjasa Ferme’s third one-woman show to date. A native of the culture-rich city of Ljubljana, a capital of Slovenia, Tjasa has moved to the United States as an adult, successful in her field but hungry for more. In her newest work, the writer-performer recalls many bizarre incidents that happened to her in roughly twenty-five different apartments she has been living in New York over the past seven years.  Ferme – who’s writing was described by a NYC’s critic “nothing short of brilliant”– combines her European sensibility and Kafkaesque sense of irony with down-to-earth toughness of a New York single girl who’s seen it all.

Wild Child In The City marks Tjasa’s first collaboration with the award-winning director Ana Margineanu, who shares her European roots, the ironic sense of humor, penchant for the unpredictable, and process-driven approach to creating work.

Part dark comedy, part rant with a strong feminist twist, part immersive theater experience, Wild Child In The City proves with grit and wit that in New York City, the truth is often much stranger than fiction.


Writer and award-winning performer Tjasa Ferme first presented her one-woman show Wild Child In The City as the highlight of the inaugural season of FLYING SOLO Festival, April 2-5, 2015.

European tour with sold out performances at Rome Fringe Festival (Rome, Italy), Sfumato Small Season (Sofia, Bulgaria) and SKUC festival in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Tjasa returned to Slovenia in April 2016 where she performed at TSD-Week of Slovenian Drama and won the Audience Choice Award.

Wild Child In The City played for Monroe College, NYC and SCV Velenje, Slovenia.

Wild Child In the City will proudly open the Solo Season at internationally known Theaterlab -an artistic laboratory dedicated to the development of experimental theater works and live performance. Stay tuned: theaterlabnyc.com
