Visual & performing arts

Offering a sensory experience for audiences, this new queer play captures the journey of a mother, attempting to recreate the scent of her daughter as a perfume.

At key moments, custom-designed scents will be incorporated into the theatrical space, bridging the abstract nature of grief with the tangible aroma of memories, as the smells of fruits, spices, leather, dirt and skin synthesise into the full picture of a person.

How do you hold onto the scent of someone who’s gone?

Recollection is supported by Pride Foundation Australia, City of Melbourne Arts Grants and the University of Melbourne Faculty of Fine Arts and Music and Ms. Beck Wilkinson. Creative Development Support by Next Wave.
