“Wildness, because I refuse to be reduced to only one image, on and off stage. Serenity, doesn’t come easy but when it’s there it allows me to look at that image with gentle eyes and work through it, with it, against it”.

In a bent world a lonely cowgirl finds her unexpected expression in rage, loneliness and self-destruction. REMEMBRANE investigates how movement and words can become accelerated tools for blurring the lines between existence and the imagination and what that means in the context of the theater. It is a multi-layered body glitch enquiring what it means to be one entity while being many and the complexity of shifting between combat and serenity, identity and the search for one, brokenness and a whole.

The piece emerged from an interest in trying to objectify my own body while questioning objectification and ownership of the fe-male body. How can I reclaim my body and still understand it as something that I am not entitled to own or have full control over.
