Do you think William Thompson has a soul? Or has he been pitched out, scooped-out, de-souled, by disease?

Ima Iduozee’s The Body Of Work examines matters of identity through a fictional self-portrait. William Thompson, the protagonist of the play, has lost his memory and now creates his personal history in the present moment. His lack of history provides a platform for a search for new ways of existence beyond learned categories.

Inspired by the case of stories of Oliver Sacks in The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Iduozee creates a tragicomic solo work that questions our notions of identity. The work premiered in November 2016 in Zodiak, with 7 sold out performances.
