The show explores a much needed whimsical journey of life, death, and rebirth through ephemeral images that evoke the passage of time and day, the shifting of the seasons. Using the manipulation of hand crafted materials, textures and exotic sculptural costume interwoven with puppetry, dance and intricate props, her work creates a journey in which movement and stillness meet binding us together as in a web.
Shreds of memory lace into a drama of a thousand intricate pieces, slowly moving toward a sense of patience and timelessness.
The story is up to the interpretation of each audience member.
