Our memory is made of windows, fragments of stories we have listened to, images we have seen, emotions we have felt, ever since we were little ones. Memories live in these windows; they open and close them.
Memories in black and white, pleasant and unpleasant ones, that turn the past into present for a little while and that we can relive thanks to our imagination. Memories turn into questions – like the ones children ask grown-ups –, and they do so with a lightness and an innocence that seem to make the most difficult ones, the ones without an answer, almost weightless: «Will the past ever come back?» «Why does what is no more keep on living inside me, in my dreams and memories, and why does it feel so real?»
This show in three acts creates a connection between different memories belonging to different people that go in the same direction until they gather in the same place.
“Frames” is a show made of very few words, with a special focus on the movements, the feelings, and the expression of the two actresses telling this story. The set design is simple and essential, and thanks to the presence of signs and drawings, it is constantly evolving, following the thread of the story.
