Directed by Anna Furse, with video installation by Lucy Cash.

“…the interplay of screen images (flying birds, babes-in-the-womb, X-rayed limbs, playing children) and live actions (the laying out of a set of child’s clothes, the pulling of a string of DNA-like beads from the mouth, the ritual washing and cleansing) are lovely images that work in harmony”

“Physical transparency is a key issue in this beautifully assembled and gently suggestive blend of live performance (by Marie-Gabrielle Rotie), poetic text, sound and image.”
