A young woman stands in front of a crowd to speak her memories, her truth and her construction. Reality gives way to memory and memory gives way to imagination. Constructing the set around her in real-time, the performer acts as a conduit of multiple stories as reality, memory and imaginings play out in a filmic and sonic landscape. Based on the stories of lost loved ones collected in interviews with residents of her home town of Ayr, North Queensland, director Genevieve Trace explores the psychological construction of a life through the stories of what has passed. Audiences will be left questioning the reality and imaginings of the memories of those they hold most dear.
