“Life and Times–Episodes 4.5&5” tells of the end of high school and the search for the first love. In the short Episode 4.5, Worrall’s memories are captured in an animated film. With the style of a medieval illuminated manuscript, we enter into a new (graphic) territory in Episode 5. The saga takes on unexpected turns with the protagonist’s first sexual experiences, out of which Copper and Liska made a 140-page book, written and painted by hand, which invites the audience to a joint reading experience with the company, accompanied on organ by company musician Daniel Gower.
