Work

Hollowed 2.0

I am born of each page of the book of my life
In which the word “I” embodies the past
Memory captures every second and minute
In my head are endless memory cartridges
If all memories are gone
How much effort will it take to recover them?

In the book Before I Go to Sleep
Elements of dance and theatre are used to delineate the psychological states of the heroine and other characters
L’art de la simplicité – by Dominique Loreau
“She” is someone who cannot retain her memories
“She” is someone who is manipulated by others
“She” is someone who has a hollowed soul
“He” lies through and through
“He” controls completely
“He” is desperate to possess it all
The narrator leads the audience through scenes of
“Memory”
