This performance will take place in the Studio Theatre

STUCK is an immersive performance which explores the way in which time and memory are staged, using digital video technology, soundscape and live performance.

This autobiographical journey depicts the gradual decline of the artist’s mother from advancing dementia, observing the difficult process of her identity being stripped through memory loss.

The experimental soundscape will be derived entirely from the recordings of the dance artist’s motions, footsteps, and breaths. Playing with size and scale, presence and absence, this work represents the fragmented memory and the fractured process of both remembering and forgetting. The installation creates a sensory inner world which emotionally connects with the audience.

Juxtaposing live video footage with the presence of the physical performer, a space will be created where individual experiences can be shaped and forgotten fragments of memory can be revisited. Different perceptions of reality will be explored, using both real and manipulated time frames.

STUCK is a collaboration between Edge Hill University academics, Dance Artist Julia Griffin, Digital Artist Professor Helen Newall, and Composer/Sound Artist Professor Steve Davismoon.
