*REWIND-FASTFORWARD

presented by: The Ohio State University

created and performed by: Erin Alys

committee members: Tom Dugdale & Jeanine Thompson

As we replay moments from our past (either from recordings or memory) our grasp on the present shifts.

 

The material for this solo comes recordings of my mom as a single-woman, pregnant with her first child. The camera-operator is my dad, a hopeful film student. The planned single parent documentary was never completed, as the two strangers developed their own combined story.

 

Through study of vocal and physical mannerisms of mom, dad, and self, this solo serves as it's own performed piece of "raw footage".

*HEAR WE GO

2019 - 2021

co-created and performed with Connor Graham

self produced and directed

special thanks to Jeanine Thompson, Jess Hughes, Jacob Athyal

Hear We Go tells the story of one Mime and one Foley Artist who find themselves in an interdimensional struggle. At first, the boundary between them is solid, but what happens when the barrier between them begins to crack?

This performance invites the audience to fill in the blanks with their imagination. There are no words, just physical storytelling and sound created with everyday objects. Originally devised for the stage, Hear We Go was also adapted into a short film for 2020 audiences.

"Although short, every moment peaked my curiosity.

One of my Fringe favorites."
