What is your favourite t-shirt? When did you get it, was it a gift or did you buy it? Are there any special occasions you wore it for? Has it travelled with you across borders? Using t-shirts as the playful start of an exchange, the performance choreographs memories into a visual poem, with t-shirts used as an encounter with time and memory, with losses and liberations of living in transit – from an artist whose own performances and t-shirts have been crossing borders on five continents through the past decade.
