This Is Your Life is the first UK commission from Australia’s celebrated choreographer Lucy Guerin. Known for her inventive and gutsy dance language, Guerin has assembled a series of humorous and poignant scenes from one man’s life – his friendships, his family, his job – to reveal moments of truth in an ordinary existence. This Is Your Life is shown with the mesmerising dance film The Truth. Director Katrina McPherson and editor Simon Fildes intercut contrasting footage of four vivid characters in public and private locations. Choreography is by Paulo Ribeiro (Portugal) and the award winning Fin Walker (UK), with music by Ben Park. "This spirited piece made all its points in movement, provoking laughter and thoughtful silence in turn." Country Life, June 2004
