And Then She Became a Chair
Time & Location
About the Event
Provoked by a personal story of loss, this total theatre work is an abstract expedition into the bewildering realms of human behaviour when confronted with the inevitable, yet wholly unfamiliar, event of death.
Set in the purgatory of a seemingly eternal waiting room, with time both heightened and warped, AND THEN SHE BECAME A CHAIR follows the complicated process of losing a loved one.
Part confessional text, part fabricated memory and part kitsch hallucination, the work recreates a wretched attempt to constrain the chaos and exhaustion of grief into something polite, palatable and coherent.
