Description

Fringe First Award winner. How do you chart the remarkable moments that make up a lifetime? Scrawled diary entries, answerphone messages blinking on an old landline, a shoebox of postcards and cassette tapes winding stories across years and continents. The Archive is a combination of poetic storytelling, verbatim interviews and a sprawling photo album chronicling the lives of women affected by breast cancer. Step into a library of memories, relics and keepsakes that allow a glimpse into stories of kindness and courage, fragments of absolute joy and incomprehensible heartbreak. ***** (FringeBiscuit.co.uk). ***** (AllOverAdelaide.com.au). ***** (TulpaMagazine.com).
