Clare’s twin sister died when she was four months old. Thirty years later she’s alone in her family bach with a box of old documents, a collection of second hand memories and the ever present twinkling of unfamiliar grief. Journey with Clare as she explores the fog of loss, shining light upon its intricacies.
Twinless will feature home video footage, voice over, movement & a banging tune (or two). In sharing Twinless, we seek to illuminate the kaleidoscopic nature of loss.
“A more honest and generous story of grief than any I have seen for a long time.” - Sarah May (for Theatrescenes)
