An Inner Place that Has No Place

An Inner Place That Has No Place is an evening-length performance work created by Shannon Stewart in collaboration with filmmaker Adam Sekuler, composer Jeff Huston, and performers Meredith Horiuchi, Mary Margaret Moore, Aaron Swartzman, Rosa Vissers, and David Wolbrecht, delving into memory and memory loss.

Through dance theater, music and film this piece illustratesering as a process of recreation rather than reproduction. It attempts to retrieve the content of memories lost either because of time or the myriad of reasons we intentionally forget–fear, shame, regret, grief and posit them next to absurd life documentation posing questions about how the recollection of our life is intentionally fictional.

This piece is part of a suite of dance a film works exploring memory and memory loss at the personal, material, and societal levels. An Inner Place That Has No Place was made possible through support from 4Culture, Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs and 112 individual Kickstarter donors.
