This new work is inspired by memory including: long term memory; immediate memory; false memory; imagined memory; dream memory; and memoirs including the books Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee and The Old Woman and the City by Vivian Gornick.
Confabulation is inspired by memory and lives well-lived. Choreographed by Judith Garay and performed by Jane Osborne, Bevin Poole and Garay, it adheres to the Tennessee Williams quote that “..life is all memory, except for the present moment…”
Threads of thought and memory ferment inside the work, filled with struggle, tenacity and joy. Confabulation lives on the edges of mind and memory – looking back to see tomorrow and yesterday. It is grounded in uncertainty and the belief that false memories and imagination are an ineluctable aspect of our past and bring multiple dimensions to our present.
