Your story in my story my story in your story

Performance, 30 minutes, project gallery tĂȘte in Berlin

During the performance I talk about my journey through Latvia in search of the place where my father deserted to the Russian army during the Second World War. I talk about growing up with a father 50 years older than me and how his stories, his memories about the war have influenced my childhood and memory of childhood. The only light source in the room is a slide projection of a photograph I took at the place of which I think must be the place of his desertion to the Russian Army in 1943. The audience sits with me in a half circle facing the projection.
