Ashley Horn presents Sparrow Lane
Sparrow Lane is a new dance work from choreographer Ashley Horn. In the remote town of Sparrow Lane every day is a carbon copy of the one before until the disappearance of a woman shakes the community to the core.
Based on Horn's 2013 Persistence of Vision, Sparrow Lane explores the unreliable nature of memory. As time passes and memories are accessed and stored, they become less accurate and our ability to have an honest and identical shared past with those around us erodes. Writing by Andrew Kozma, photography by Pin Lim, live music by Dave Sharma, and choreography and an installation by Ashley Horn immerse the audience in a cryptic and evasive truth where memories are erased, shifted, and altered, skewing reality.
The installation holds keys to understanding the unique properties of Sparrow Lane and its inhabitants. Hollowed out books, hidden notes, and shifting time tables can be found by the audience if they are willing to break with theatre tradition and rifle through the set pieces.
