The Secret Life of You and Me Show

2014

On the night of my thirtieth birthday I presented the world premiere of my first solo show, The Secret Life of You and Me.

It is part performance, part installation; a live scrapbook inspired by my experience of working with people with dementia, conversations with strangers and a relationship that spanned the UK and Brazil.

Hello.  My name is Lowri. I made this show because I was approaching my thirtieth birthday and I didn’t have much to show for my life so far. I was in a long distance love affair. I liked making art in unsuspecting places. Then I started working with older people. I noticed that the things they had to show for their lives were disappearing.

This is my attempt to make a tiny mark on a page.

The show is available to tour until my fortieth birthday in 2023.

Supported by hÅb and The Lowry. Developed with support from Works Ahead, Contact, University of Salford, UCLan and public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Film by People Staring.
