In 2007, Ingrid briefly lost her memory in an accident, an event that inspires questions about self, identity and personal history in this performance. They lay half-submerged in a wide pool of water, the images of their bodies completed by their reflections, speaking of half-remembered moments, dreams and memory loss; the sound of their voices passing through both water and air.
