About: Melanie Wilson & Fuel present Autobiographer

Flora is a 76 year old woman.

She is also 18, 33 and somewhere in her late forties…

Combining a poetic text and a bold, electrifying score for voice and sound, Autobiographer draws us into Flora’s slowly unravelling mind. In a tender and lyrical performance, fragments of stories and pulses of memory build layer upon layer into a curious, evocative portrait of a life refracted through the lens of dementia.

Melanie Wilson is one of the UK’s most fascinating and stylish young theatre-makers, described as “part of a generation of artists easing British Theatre in to the 21st Century” by Lyn Gardner (The Guardian) and is making a mark with her poetic, witty and intimate style of theatre.

“It is a rare and considered artist who can approach an emotive subject with great sensitivity while also taking brave risks [it is] a beautiful puzzle... sharply moving... beyond heartbreaking.” The Irish Times

"Wilson's tools are not just the word or the physical, but also her own intensity, light and dark, and an extraordinary soundscape that transports us into a dislocating otherness."Lyn Gardner, The Guardian (Iris Brunette)

Cast: Janet Henfrey, Alice Lamb, Penelope McGhie and Melanie Wilson
