A site-specific, promenade performance made for the Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood as part of the Big Dance.
When does a memory become a story? When does a story become a museum?
Sewing Your Shadow was a ‘cabinet’ of memories, gestures and movement collected from a company of professional performers, older dancers from Green Candle Dance Company and children from Chisehale Primary School and choreographed into a twilight stroll through the museum.
Memories were collected from people aged seven to seventy years and re-imagined as song, gesture, movement and stories. Each one of us is a small museum for the images and stories we collect, remember and leave behind us as shadows.
