Kyra Jean Green’s piece explores what life can be when one forgets their emotions and physical sensations. The main character suffers from alexithymia, the inability to identify and describe one’s own emotions, and anaphia, the inability to feel touch. She finds herself in a world where everything is numb. All alone on stage, she remembers what it is like to feel touch and emotions, but her memory falters. The intimate performance showcases the private world of an individual who is desperate to feel again.
