Two is an experimental performance that captures the memory of Helen living with Alzheimer’s disease, through the voices of her daughter and great grandson. The dialogue of these memories is physically manifested through mindless clay play, revealing a tactile form of the intimate speech from both emotionally driven individuals.
From the clay responses, individual linear sketches emerge, highlighting crucial lines and directional queues. Through refinement, figures are drawn from the queues and transformed into a choreographed schematic performed by the researcher—as a visualised reflection of the dialogue. The performance endeavours to uncover the two different natures between Helen’s relationship with her daughter and great grandson in the context of her erosive, cranial condition.
