Created and performed by Laura Bradshaw

In her 92nd year, Phyllis’s body is slowing, ailing.  Eyes lose sight, ears lose sound. Black and white photographs in a roses tin. Swollen feet in slippers. Memory upon memory of lived experience.

Is this the dance of aging? In her 29th year, Laura sits in her grandmother’s sitting room and listens. This is their story.

Laura Bradshaw works as a freelance performer and is based in Glasgow. She has worked with Pacitti Company, LisaLouise, Fish & Game, Nic Green and Uninvited Guests.

 

“The ancestors did not create the land but they created its meaning and shape- themountains and the hills and the rock and the animals, people, places”
