In Memory of Leaves on a Boat
Following performances at the InTRANSIT Festival and the TeatroKeiros in Rome, award-winning writer and performer, Natasha Langridge, performed In Memory of Leaves on a wide beam barge at three central London moorings.
The production opened on the Fordham Gallery Barge at Meanwhile Gardens in Kensington on Wednesday 4th October and the barge then sailed to Camden Lock for the second week of the tour on Wednesday 11th October and finished its' voyage at Hackney Wick on Wednesday 21st October.
"The world is burning. You say nothing. But to ask me about the weather."
In Memory of Leaves is an uncompromising monologue about love and protest; in the wake of the destruction of her home on the Wornington Green Estate in North Kensington, Natasha gets arrested with Occupy Democracy, volunteers in the refugee camp in Calais and forms a relationship with a cherry tree.
Framed by an unsettling love affair, In Memory of Leaves explores what happens to communities when they are moved from their homes. It is personal and bracing; a love note to neighbours and a revolutionary call to the world.
These are some photo's from Natasha's performance on Saturday, 14th October of In Memory of Leaves on a Boat.
