“This is a story about my Nana and the memories I have of her”

In the wake of Nana Elsie’s death, a young woman tries to piece together fragments of family legend, fact and memory left behind. In the process of grief, she meets Elsie long before she was a Nana, discovers the incredible life she led and the legacy that she leaves behind in the memory of her family.

A biographical piece, ELSIE is based on the life of Lily Empson’s own Nana Elsie and is performed by Empsom and her sister Lauren.

An exploration of how shared memories are a tool to hold onto those we love, ELSIE combines physical theatre with contemporary dance.

No stranger to Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival, Empson was Co-Choreographer for Moving Parts NZ’s Shifting Dynamics in last year’s festival and a dancer in Enough in 2020.

This work was chosen to be presented as part of Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival from the Meteor Theatre Boil Up Project, an incubator of new work initiative.
