Monday, Larissa (The Practice of Saving) is an interactive poetic performance dealing with our longing for eternity. Livne used a camera and projector to create a live recording of the performance. Together with the audience she tried to deconstruct the event as it unfolded. Using photographs and live images she played with the idea of recreating memories. In essence, reconstructing a memory creates a new one. She made this never-ending cycle of reconstruction and deconstruction a point of discussion between the actors and the audience.
"Lilach Livne, a young performing artist who gets on stage, strips off her soul, and allows her audience to touch her truth with no bias just modesty, directness and wisdom… Livne created a performance with exceptional strength, which deals with the greatest fears: death, loss and abandonment. Lilach never lets go of any nightmare, cry, or shiver…" - Iris Kovalio, visual artist
