Philadelphia choreographer Nichole Canuso presents a solo performance that uses personal reminiscences and universal yearnings to explore the relationship between memory and self. Combining music, movement and personal narratives and using Frédéric Chopin’s 24 Preludes to frame the piece into segments, the evening-length work overlaps murky memories of the past with the ephemerality of the present in an attempt to reveal larger questions about what we keep and what we toss aside.
