Memory matter

Memory Matter by choreographers Georgie Goater, Maikki Palm and Gesa Piper, explores and unpacks embodied ancestral lineage(s) through the lens of grandbodies. The ”the grandmother” is not only the literal family relation, but a portal to meeting concepts of time travel within oneself, and the impossibilities of encountering what is no longer present.
Premiere on Zodiak stage 21.10.2020.
