Combining a lyrical text, immersive staging and an enigmatic and compelling performance style, Autobiographer draws us into the unravelling mind of its central character, Flora. Voiced by multiple performers, Flora reveals a curious and evocative portrait of a life refracted through the lens of dementia, layered from fragments of stories and pulses of memory. This tender, poetic and thrilling performance features a cast of four and a bold and electrifying score of voice and sound.

'Autobiographer successfully presents us with one reality of dementia and our attitudes to it… deeply poetical' – Exeunt Magazine

'Wilson uses an unobtrusive vocabulary to say something quietly surprising. It is the beauty of telling stories, even when there is no narrative. And it is the importance of people connecting, especially if we don’t know who we are' 4 stars - Spoonfed

'This show is a long poem, shakily and delicately sketched in our minds by four women, who in similar clothing represent the life of one woman… A clear amount of loving research has gone into this work, which considers the terrible nature of dementia without making it overly sentimental' 4 stars – The Public Reviews

‘Heartfelt and lyrical’ – Guardian

Autobiographer is a work of vivid poetry’ –Time Out London
