Looking for venues for Remembering and Forgetting in Bristol and the South West
Remembering and Forgetting
at glemme ……. at huske
performed by Melanie Thompson (U.K) and Bjarne Sandborg (D.K)
“With death by drowning and fire as their point of departure, Melanie Thompson and Bjarne Sandborg draw their audience into journeys which fascinatingly express essential human emotions.” Kirsten Dahl 24. August 2017
These 2 solo performances were created in parallel. One in Denmark, the other in the U.K. The shared links and overlaps ( Melanie collaborated and directed Bjarne’s performance) to create an evening of intense visual, sonic and emotional worlds that intercut and collide, through film, water and tiny furniture.
