The Nature of Forgetting
Friday 3rd February 12.00pm
Theatre RE present The Nature of Forgetting
Following sell-out runs in London, New York, Edinburgh, Hong Kong, Seoul, Sao Paulo, Lima and across the UK, Theatre Re presents a powerful, explosive and joyous piece about what is left when memory is gone. Tom is 55, today. As he dresses for his party, tangled threads of disappearing memories spark him into life, unravelling as a tale of friendship, love and guilt.
To develop The Nature of Forgetting, Theatre RE collaborated with UCL Neuroscience Professor Kate Jeffery. Research on memory and amnesia formed the basis and foundation of our explorations. We also interviewed older members of the community as well as people living with dementia to create links between the science and the real human experience. Ultimately, our piece is not about dementia. It is about the fragility of life and that eternal “something” we all share that is left when memory is gone
Established as a professional ensemble in 2011, Theatre Re has garnered a national and international reputation for creating world class, deeply moving, and visually striking poetic theatre. ‘Profoundly moving… An action packed celebration of life.’ John Wilson, BBC Radio 4
