Language of Loss


This performance, directed by Nikki Heywood and devised by Matt Prest, Lizzie Thompson, Michelle Outram, Costa Latsos, Siobahn Murphy with sound by Jason Sweeney, projections and design by myself, unlike many other projects, allows us to search without the need for answers. I am constantly trying to tie things up and tie them in but apart from sound and image resonances, the work resists analysis. Although it is based on the performers' real experience, ambivalence reigns, an unrelenting, unconscious sculpture... phew... humbling... beyond conscious, before construction...
