2019 - current
Mapping my 30-year standard normal*
An intimate performance exploring landscapes of memory and humanity’s relationship with the earth, Constellations is designed for small audiences of up to 6 people. Through a re-imagining of the performance space in miniature, it investigates themes of nostalgia and memory in relation to the multiple scales of environmental crisis. Numerous timelines intertwine as the piece examines humanity’s power to both destroy and be destroyed, and our capacity to care for a world within which we are totally enmeshed.
*30 years is the standard reference period for calculating climate normals and identifying variations in global temperature (WNO, 2021).
'... absolutely mesmerising and unlike anything else I've ever seen.' (audience member, Constellations)
