At the altar of sleeplessness and solitude, who better to lift us from our knees than a secret version of ourselves?

How do we beckon her and how does she respond when she is no longer alone?

This work follows the storyline of two entities as they conjure resiliency and endurance, in solidarity and solitude, wrinkling the lines of time to tell their stories of lost love. The pair test techniques for personal growth through the creation of alter-egos and memory mansions. As they cultivate these characters, they also strive to find room for one another in moments of hardship and humor. Questioning the rituals of healing, the two protagonists engage one another in a dance of mixed tapes, bed sheets, Patsy Cline and watermelon fields.

Inspired by the works of Frida Kahlo, surrealism, pop culture and poetry, Altær will share the tale through an evening of movement and media.
