In a strange and isolated room, a girl is reacquainted with confounding details about her past. Her story is ambiguous. Yet, the room insists that something traumatic had happened to her. This surreal fever dream, or nightmare is the site of post-trauma. ‘Blank Run’ is a viscerally arresting investigation of memory. It is a memory landscape combining video installation, soundscape, physical theatre and multilingual text in its multisensory storytelling. It is a jigsaw puzzle, with each element constructing its own version of “what really happened”.
