Skipping over Damaged Area

This is not what I wanted to say! Do I know you? Do you think she loves me?
For Skipping over Damaged Area (2011), house-choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot were intrigued as to how the brain matures and human memory functions, putting life’s painful events, the ‘damaged areas’,
to the back of your mind with more room for pleasant memories. Dancer Medhi Walerski embodies an elder man, who restlessly tries to grasp his memories uttering severe monologues. The fascinating set reflects his
world literally upside down.
