What did I just do?


a co-production with MaudsArt , Dansehallerne and Dansstationen

In What did I just do? performer Maud Karlsson Lima de Faria recovers her six decades of life in a detailed stream of memories, starting from her grandparents owning a pom poms factory in the 60s, to arrive at what will be the present moment in 2023. A journey in time and space, which mixes events in an overwhelming chaos of images and speed, exposing the inextricable relationship time-memory-identity-society.

To what extent do memories become part of our identity? Are we aware of their impact on our present actions? Is there such a thing as the present moment? The sentences you just read are already part of your past. Your immediate past, which still lingers in the air as if it was present, but your past nonetheless.

“It is not the past as such that governs us, except perhaps in a biological sense. It is the images of the past, often highly structured and selected as myths. Images of the past are imprinted, almost like genetic information, on our sensitivity. “
(G. Steiner)
