"There are many sides to this story, eighteen at least. One side is yours, which might not be much of a side at all but perhaps just a moment in time. We change perspectives, understand, discover, agree and disagree. We create new versions, cut and paste, reverse and remember.  As individuals within a group, a dance piece within a theatre, these are the games we play."
