Three performers dance their memories and hopes in this raw allegory of life. It’s about people using whatever they can to make their own perfect solo. It’s not always clear who’s assisting who. Philip Connaughton, long-time collaborator Lucia Kickham and French dance artist Magali Caillet are accompanied by video footage of Madeleine, Philip’s mother, who suffers from advanced dementia. Her ancient and beautiful presence makes us look at how we, as society, deal with the ageing body.
