“It’s difficult you know to find words now to say you know, like it’s difficult because you know like she is the victim you know and I am the one who did it, so it is already been done you know. I can’t really say sorry you know because that would be too easy” (Jeffrey; recorded Sept 2014)
Anne Meets Jeffrey is a new collaboration between Emma Berentsen and Tiffany Murphy based on the rape case of Anne, which explores reconstruction and memory through live performance, video and sound.
The two performers encounter the challenges of witnessing and remembering especially in the event of trauma. Anne Meets Jeffrey is an intimate and engaged performance about the fear of dying, losing dignity and reclaiming power by facing your biggest fear.
