xx CONNECTION BETWEEN FRAGMENTED HI/STORIES
Great Britain / 2015 / 30'
In the field of neurology, scientists have identified that the human mind inserts information from the present into past memories. When recalled the memories become reinterpreted to adapt in an ever changing environment, re-framing moments of a person’s life. Unlike a film, which relays a recorded event as it was captured, the human memory edits information to present a story which fits into a person’s present reality
What would you do if you could return to a memory and change it? Would it affect your future? Could you rewrite a part of your own history?
“A brilliantly simple one-on-one, allows for
memory to be reframed or rewritten. It is a
piece that has generosity at its warm,
– Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
“A genuinely immersive experience that
takes place in the deep psychological space
of memory, mediated by technology, and
performed with humility, care and a lightness of
touch you simply don’t see the full weight and
impact of the piece coming.”
– Robert Pacitti, Curator and director of SPILL Festival of Performance
“Recall was an emotional experience
that brings you straight to your heart,
as it were - it’s incredible”
– Selina Thompson, Artist
