Summary/Abstract: text devoted to the history of the American lesbian/feminist Split Britches performance group. The author lists the group’s most important projects, where the butch/femme relationship forms the axis of their constructions. Part two of the article reviews the group’s latest performance, Lost Lounge (2009). In this self-reflexive play about a romance between two aging female artists, Split Britchesraises the topic of setting memory strategies in motion (theirs and the audience’s), and evokes recollections that seemed to be irrevocably lost.
