There are allusions to other works and other modes of presentation throughout the performance. Sign language is used effectively as a movement-based medium to tell a story of brothers and trees. Reference is made to Alice in Wonderland – particularly the idea of “muchness” and waking up without it. Toward the end of the piece, one of the cast members performs a monologue while the remaining six cast members lift her in various positions. From beginning to end, My-Self is a powerful showcase of the results of clever choreography, a well thought-out narrative, and a capable cast.
