'Growth' was performed for camera on the 8th May 2020, during the lockdown period. The performance is a character sketch featuring a woman who is interested in the idea of 'growth', that is, trying new and different things. The story references changes in behaviour during a prolonged period of staying in the same place (lockdown). During the performance, there are cuts between live dialogue and a pre-recorded voiceover that directs and commentates on the character.
