The Language My Mother Speaks will be the third major project created by Samantha on the themes of dementia and personhood. The project will be a collaboration between Samantha (theatre artist), Denise Martin (film maker and photographer) and Tim Preston (lighting design and production management).
This project jumps into the territory of consciousness and takes as its starting point the artist’s impressions of her mother’s life as she lived in a state of advanced dementia. Exploring a multi-dimensional and interconnected reality, the artists will transform the many spaces within The Phee Broadway Theatre into rooms of consciousness – an installation ‘mansion’ within which the audience is invited to roam.
