Three women separated by a hundred years start a conversation across time. Their parallel experiences reveal shared imaginings of identity and escape, as menacing undercurrents steal into their solitary and reflective lives. As the landscape presses in on them, they draw upon the threads that connect them to survive.
Landscape II was a compelling solo work by Melanie Wilson. This bold hybrid of performance, film, and sound art created a highly contemporary and minutely observed piece of new theatre.
