And for thy peace, is about memory and its hauntings.
About my mother’s mother – my grandmother, Nanny Bob. About her love of dancing that felt like it was always in the past.
This is about remembering. About Mothers. About glamour. About death.
This is a collaboration with my memories of Nanny Bob.
This is show for the living and the dead.
This is spoken in necromantic tongues.
This is a thinning of the veil.
This is a party and a wake.
So, shall we go out dancing?
