AIRE – for my mother

Kirstie Simson (UK) shares her passion for the exploration of freedom in this autobiographical dance solo/duet performance. Through the use of humour, eye contact, dialogue and proximity, the performer invites the audience to join her on a journey as she negotiates her way through present moment decision-making that is inherent in improvised performances. With light-hearted spontaneity, through the use of movement and text, this master performer affirms the fundamental positivity of life. She draws on the wisdom of her ancestors as she weaves her parent’s stories with her own recent confrontation and subsequent healing from a life-threatening illness, in a work that celebrates the depth of human connection and potentiality.

Leanore Ickstadt will join Kirstie on stage as an interpreter and witness during the performance.
