By bringing together the languages of figure theatre, music and movement this performance creates an installation that offers the direct experience of a reflection on personal time and its spatial dimension.
Child, teenager, woman, mother, grandmother. How do all these figures fit into one person, into one body? How many am I and how old am I? Throughout a lifetime we try to find out, and a little also during this performance, which is meant to be an invitation to continue walking with the same curiosity, to continue being surprised by each new moment, by each memory that accompanies us or that pops up unexpectedly. To stop for a moment and then resume the path, building and completing it, one lap after another, always the same, never the same. Every step leaves a trace, whether it is an imprint, a sound, or simply a memory, somewhere it will resonate. Can we find it again? We only have to walk. Back we cannot, let us go forward.
After a first presentation in April 2023 (in the context of the MA Progam at ATD in Verscio/CH), it is planned to finalise and adapt the performance to a mobile version, which can be hosted in different spaces providing a good floor visibility.
