Can we trust today’s memory to keep the past alive?
If so, for how long?
If not, is there anything we can do about it?
Juxtaposing unbridled childish glee with adulthood’s harsh realities, There’s no point crying over spilt milk is a dynamic investigation by Aby Watson with Alexander Horowitz into the ephemeral nature of life, growing up, and the bittersweet fallibility of memory.
In this funny yet tender performance, the duo takes movement practice and musical tradition back to basics - eagerly attempting to re-embody the past - as they question whether we are ever really ready to let go.

'Watson builds an entire life, from childhood innocence to adult loss. It’s funny, poignant and smart, with Watson a mesmeric stage presence.' David Hepburn, Milngavie and Bearsden Herald
'a dying fall, albeit a darkly humorous one… an echo of how – as adults – we hark back to childish things as a buffer against disappointment and loss.' Mary Brennan, The Herald
