Description of performance A 50 minute live performance
Summary This is a 50 minute solo performance work. Created by Magda Miranda and Rea Dennis Directed by Rea Dennis Performed by Magda Miranda Entitled 'Pedaços' - a Portuguese word meaning pieces or fragments, the performance is built on fragments: of text, of memory, of artifacts collected over a life, of cultural identity that is fractured through the passages of life, migration, the death of family members, and even ageing. Part of Dr Dennis' practice-led research the inquiry explores the way memory intersects with creative process, including spontaneity and decision making, when devising for theatre. Following a post-doc line of inquiry which yielded two previous works: Apart of and A Part From (2007) and Train Tracks and Rooftops (2010) in which Dennis performed and directed. The current work shifts focus to my work in a directorial role alone. It is performed by Magda​ and informed by her memory.
