About the performance

Drawing inspiration from the notion of a “memory lane”, so it goes initiates a conversation between somatic memory and its imprint on movement. Through the way in which physical sensations and recollections have been recorded on the body, it brings sense memory into the present. Guided by personal needs and impulses, the piece is an experiential process that explores new ways of expressing kinetic experience.
