Over several days, separated by 0.5km, two performers attempt an intimate semaphored conversation. Using flags instead of spoken words, this improvised narrative communicates playfully across the city. Passers-by leave personal stories, which become part of the accumulative dialogue, transforming the two parallel sites into impromptu memorials of shared love, loss and separation.

“…unique storytelling that feels absolutely of the place…you can’t help but smile.” The Guardian
“…seeing Save Me in action was strangely and undeniably beautiful, with some individuals being reduced to tears.” Exeunt Magazine
