Stage Autobiography for two
Two friends reconstruct childhood memories. They collect memory fragments and unfold their stories through heaps of sand poured on the stage and toy soldiers placed on them. As the personal stories are woven, each of the two women’s wish to tell a personal story turns into a fight over the right to perpetuate memory and design identity. In the battlefield constructed and destroyed on stage, the stories blend and create a new, shared narrative.
