Martha Graham’s assertion ‘The Body Doesn’t Lie’ defines the expressive body as one which tells truth. But which truth? If the body is a library, we access a certain history of a certain body, the one we see on the stage before us, a history which never proclaims itself as such but can be read and felt in utterances of movements, language and light. I trace a thread of questions that lead back through me into time through a briefly imagined present and into a forgotten future. Where does amnesia belong and where does memory start?
