My research is related to narratives in stories based on memories, and staged as small performances. I have called my practice echo theatre. I am concerned about the body based story, and the reflection that can emerge from the performative aspects of it. The neurologist Oliver Sachs claims that storytelling is rooted in the body, and that storytelling as a ground phenomenon is founded on our body based identity. The philosopher Paul Ricoeur view stories as a means of creating meaning and building an identity. He writes about the dialectics between what we are who we are, and that the bridge between these is the told ethics that gives us a continuous identity. The staging of the biographical stories can help support the grip on storytelling structure and the construction of meaning, and in this way help strengthen the stories identity building qualities.
