in several times is a choreography of space, memory and the body. Developed from personal stories, family history and nostalgic association, the work aims to create a place in which several times and environments can be remembered and acknowledged simultaneously. The process of creating this work began with a trip to spaces that held significance to my family, searching for traces of the past in the present, and the recollection of senses that connect my body to these spaces and my history. The work has been developed with the creative input of five performers, two sound designers and a lighting designer who meet in an ever evolving concert, enveloped in wafts of fresh dill and lemon. Presented in traverse arrangement, with two different sound spaces at either end of the corridor, the performance surrounds the viewer bringing them into the collective act and embodiment of remembering, recalling and sensing.
