Vestige is the compelling, complex and emotionally charged work that was the company’s first collaboration with writer Ankur Bahl. Including a haunting sound design by composer Angus MacRae and a versatile design by Nicolai Hart-Hansen, Vestige tells the posthumous story of the enigmatic Livia.
Think about Marilyn Monroe, Amy Winehouse and Sylvia Plath. Think about how we experience these women today. We know these women through the memories of the people they met and the stories they share.
Vestige is based on the life of a fictional celebrity named Livia. Her memory is also kept alive in the stories told by those who knew her. Fan-girl archivist Suki, needy portrait artist Cath and jealous biographer and ex-husband Killian all share their differing accounts of Livia as she weaves her way through their memories.
