Prolonged Memory of the Boys That Were was part of THE PERSONAL SPECTACLE SERIES, a semi-autobriographical project that experminents on abstract narrative styles by avoiding any propensity for logic, clarity of language, linearity, and exposition of plot, yet maintaining a significant story arc. PROLONGED MEMORY...is a silent, three-hour, two-character installation/movement piece about a woman role-playing and replaying the painful memory of her gang rape. The piece uses elements of contemporary dance, mime, clowning, masks, puppetry, and performance art.
