Ringside – Mem Morrison Company

MEM MORRISON’s Ringside draws the lifetime of remembered Turkish Cypriot family weddings. The fascination of his art lies in his intensive search for forms in which to express himself, and in the strength of the images he finds – direct, authentic and at the same time artistically transformed.
Using the celebration and rituals of remembered wedding receptions as its foundation, Ringside explores issues surrounding autobiography, identity, sexuality, memory, culture and self-censorship and one-time childhood fantasies and how they so easily could have become a reality.
Ringside is part written, devised and performed with a group of 20 women from Oldenburg, playing the roles of Mem’s potential wives and wedding guests.

»A thoughtful exploration of the roles we play and how these tally up with who we really are. EDINGBURGH FRINGE
