Reveries and elegies is Mary Armentrout Dance Theater’s current site-specific performance project, a shifting, wandering, accumulating, de-accumulating installation that is trying to deal with a shifting, ungraspable subject: change, loss, dislocation.

life is so strange, life is so strange –
it's always changing and always staying the same

This show has installed itself at five different locations across the US and mapped itself onto very different locales and situations – it always changes and something about it stays the same. It comes to Roehampton to be remade anew and interrogate the shifting nature of performance.

Experimental choreographer Mary Armentrout creates site-specific performance installations both locally, around the San Francisco Bay Area, and further afield. Her work has been presented across the United States and throughout Europe.
