This Town, 2012
Site-specific performance with Tanya Byrne
New Perspectives Festival, Västerås SE
This town - a memory we never had. Yet it is impressed upon our little minds. We share this. We share something, someone for whom this town serves as backdrop to her adolescence. We know all about this, yet we know nothing. Does this town even exist? Now all we have left is those memories impressed upon our little minds.We collect them gently and frantic. Hoping to squeeze something physical out from them, something from her. Atoms. An imprint. Does a person leave an imprint in a place where she has lived? Are there some atoms left in this town? Adolescent atoms, of a person that is no longer physically present. We want to gather. We want to gather the memories, the atoms, the imprints of our shared someone. Someone who made us. We´re here to search for the memories we never had.
