When I Recall Her, a dance theatre piece, explores the power of recollection, feelings of longing, rejections of homesickness. When I Recall Her invites audience members to re-define space, place, and time. Part dance-theatre, part docu-drama, part-community-discourse, this work provides an opportunity to acknowledge the memories we hold with us every day and the spaces we refuse to abandon. When I Recall Her was first workshopped at BAM.
