Mayfest: 'Autobiographer'

Tue 22nd – Thu 24th May 2012


“Soundbite to be specified”





Fuel Theatre


Combining a lyrical text, immersive staging and an enigmatic and compelling performance style, Autobiographer draws us in to the unravelling mind of its central character, Flora. Voiced by multiple performers, Flora reveals an evocative portrait of a life refracted through the lens of dementia, layered from fragments of stories and pulses of memory. This tender, poetic and thrilling performance features a cast of four, and a bold and electrifying score of voice and sound.

"Wilson’s tools are not just the word or the physical, but also her own intensity, light and dark, and an extraordinary soundscape that transports us into a dislocating otherness."
