Elsie by Lily Empson ***NEW DATES***

How to make sense of 98 years worth of life in just a few short minutes?

In the wake of Nana Elsie’s death, a young woman tries to piece together fragments of family legend, fact and memory left behind.
In the process of grief, she meets Elsie long before she was a Nana, discovers the incredible life she led and the legacy that she leaves behind in the memory of her family.

Created and performed by sisters Lily and Lauren Empson, Elsie combines physical theatre and contemporary dance to explore how shared memories are a tool to hold onto those we love.

We all carry inside the people that came before us. Our memories of those we love mould who we are today.

Created as a part of the Boil Up Creative Development programme.
