AlShe/Me

AlShe/Me by Linda Hayford - Inside Out Company

Two siblings play with their similarities and subtle differences, a game that reveals their unique connection. In AlShe/Me, Linda Hayford develops her research on metamorphosis and physical transformation, focusing on the brother-sister relationship she observes the influences on each other, through whatever they suffer, perceive or internalise. 

Beyond words and implicit empathy, this duet gives each performer the place to develop their own individuality.

In AlShe/Me (pronounced as “alchimie” in French), Linda Hayford appears on stage alongside her older brother, Mike Hayford. Years after having given her a leg up in the world of popping, the dancer accompanies his sister in a duo that focuses on the ephemeral character of the genre.
