The journey of stories
Forever Walls and reflections
An impassioned and provocative work dealing with fear, pain and emotional denial it was created for the 'Lillian Baylis Theatre' before moving on to 'Spring Loaded' at the Place Theatre via invitation.
Originally inspired by Lorraine's expereince working as a 'Catwalk' Choreographer for company 'NO LOGO this work was interested in the human being behind the mask of gestures, contrived words and clothing. It's a work that poses the question: what happens when you take these away and leave only the true unhidden self, a persons inner feelings that are so often hidden behind their 'Forever Walls'
Sadly the record of this work has long been lost so there is little left of the first half of the show which was with three dancers and extensive lycra dresses that criss crossed across the stage, tied on either side to the lighting rigs. A mass of costume, entrapping the performers together in a precarious and entangled dance that threatened to rip away their defenses revealing their true and bare selves.
Maybe one day we will have the opportunity to recreate the visuals in this work but for now these low quality images are all that are left.
