I was not born in a place, but in a story.
We all come from a story told to us,
we are told and told...
And so, we build on each other.
I was not born in a place, I come from this story...
A performance that traces the lives of several gene- rations of women (mothers and daughters) from the same family. Mothers who have lost children, daughters who have lost their mothers... Women who have migrated, lived war, dictatorship, fought poverty, cohabited with death... What legacy did they leave to their daughters? Are the women in our family stuck in fear and anger? Or have they armed their daughters for happiness?
Jill Greenhalgh has been a professional theatre maker since 1978. Her career as a performer, director and producer has primarily focused on experimental physical practice. The specific interest in the performance work being developed by women resulted in the foundation, in 1986, of The Magdalena Project. She has toured her own performances, and led workshops, extensively within Europe, Australasia and the Americas, throughout these years. As director and producer her most recent performance projects include: The Acts—Vigia, a performance project created as a response to the murders of hundreds of young women in and around the US Mexico border town of Juarez, The Threat of Silence and The Book of Space which investigated quietude and landscape in performance and Daughter, a project made with local communities of performers and non-performers focusing on personal stories of mother and daughter relationships. Jill was full-time Lecturer in Performance Studies at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth (2002–16), specialising in devised physical performance, women’s theatre and actor training. She and her dog live on the west coast of rural Wales.
