Lapsed is an honest exploration which attempts to show my view of a relationship challenged by memory. A solo contemporary dance performance, Lapsed is drawn from the personal experience of my relationship with my grandmother and the challenges that have occurred since dementia became a part of it. Surrounded by childhood photographs that encircle the piece, the dance moves through contradicting emotions and consistent loops which are broken by a brief glimpse of acknowledgement.
Lapsed has been performed at:
