By The Fading Light




40 min solo


By the Fading Light is a piece about age and aging. It unfolds the inner story of a woman, past, present and future. All ages exist within her - a young naive self, a disappointed mature self, a bitter ageing self, a wiser older self. She journeys between these identities, fighting with invisible demons of self image, mourning the loss of forgotten dreams, finding peace in the wisdom of perspective.
