Epilogue

There was a time when all five of them were weighed down by the sand.

Living in it every day, it bothered them. It found its way into their hair, their clothing and folds of skin.

They tried to find meaning in it but they didn't know how.

After six weeks of living in it every day without purpose it had become an irritant, something that needed to be shedded.

 

So they eventually carried this epic weight to the sea and returned it to where it came from.

 

This performance was an 'Epilogue' to the story of the sand; an attempt to find closure after the parting.

 

 

Epilogue was made in collaboration with 5 first year students on the (BA) Contemporary Performance Practice degree at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
