What curiosities lie forgotten on bookshelves and in boxes?….. photographs, menus and a ship’s log from a relative’s Mediterranean voyage on a 1930s cruise…. a collection of carvings with an intriguing story, hand-me-down recipes and a few old tools. Dance Lab Collective animate each others’ personal histories. This piece could just get you wondering what might be lurking in your family’s archive.
You are invited to bring along a photo/object/or recipe from your own family history that you are happy to share with others in the audience during the show…but you don’t have to!
Creators/Performers: Kerry Chappell, Martin Harvey, Lizzie Swinford, Pam Woods
