"Abandoned place with layers of colour : each room a different silent story. The wind comes in through broken windows as outside birds are singing. Inside : I hear my breath, my steps. I am alone here and my heart beats fast so I dance. I dance with my fears." "IN-ner Space revisited" is a short experimental video dance (6:59min); a reflection on and reaction to the fractured memories of a transient hospital community long departed from this abandoned place where now shadows of experience reside in the decaying remains of once majestic architecture. More specifically this work started as a site specific improvised performance for camera made in Beelitz- Heilstaetten (Germany), TB clinic and sanatorium turned military hospital where both Hitler and Honecker were patients. Now an abandoned, haunting, eerie place; shrouded in mystery, occupied by the accumulated memories of thousands of patients. The dance is a spontaneous reaction to the fragmented memories hidden within the walls and the effects both a metaphor and communications channel for the myriad distressed psyches informing the performance.
