The Future Is Behind You

The Future Is Behind You (Abigail Child)
L'Alternativa Hall / Hall Focus - Session 1 / The Future Is Behind You


"A fictional story composed from an anonymous family archive from 1930s Europe, reconstructed to emphasise gender acculturation in two sisters who play, race, fight, kiss and grow up together under a shadow of oncoming history.... The Future Is Behind You excavates gestures to get at the heart of narrative; it seeks a bridge between private and public histories." (A. Child)
