A door, a bridge, an individual.
Each can connect or separate space, place, time and people. Bringing together a cast from Canada, England, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, Spain, Russia and Portugal, this devised ensemble piece reflects on otherness as interdependence.
The performers switched memories, reshuffled personal stories, gradually blurring the line between individual memories, merging each image into a common, kaleidoscopic vision of ourselves. In a moment in which bridges are abruptly being closed and islands are moving further away, 'I am because you are' invites the public to question identity building based on the fear of difference. This performance is where we see our future, a safe place in which collective memory is a land to build upon.
