Share via Email Lisa Dwan in Footfalls. In this Perth festival production, originally staged at the Royal Court in London, the three are presented as a triptych by Lisa Dwan, who was coached in her performance by Whitelaw herself. For the women portrayed here by Dwan, the answer exists somewhere among personal myths, puns and the ruthless interrogation of theatrical illusion. In Footfalls, a woman in her 40s lives or relives the terminal decline of her mother to the metronome beat of her own pacing footsteps.

And in Rockaby, a recorded poetic incantation charts the mortal decline of an old woman whose rocking chair swings, seemingly, without her aid. She performs the monologue at incredible pace, pushing the stream-of-consciousness style to mimic the speed of thought. For Footfalls, Dwan works with vocal technology to perform both as the present woman and her unseen mother — no small feat given she must also maintain the precise physical beat of the scene with her feet.

Similarly, in Rockaby, her rock towards death is meted out with hypnotic verbal rhythm. It is accomplished, impressive — and, yet, for this reviewer, not quite entertaining. The bittersweet conclusion these three plays themselves imprint is that a moment happens only once, and no act of remembering, however powerfully felt, can regain it.

Samuel Beckett

Synopsis[ edit ] The play is in four parts. Each opens with the sound of a bell. After this the lights fade up to reveal an illuminated strip along which a woman, May, paces back and forth, nine steps within a one-metre stretch. In each part, the light will be somewhat darker than in the preceding one.
