Following a sell-out run at the 2017 London International Mime Festival, Theatre Re’s The Nature of Forgetting is a powerful, explosive and joyous piece about what is left when memory and recollection are gone. It is part of British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2017.
This ambitious project with actors, mimes and musicians has been created in collaboration with UCL Neuroscience Professor Kate Jeffery and inspired by interviews and workshops with organisations such as the Alzheimer’s Society.
Established in 2009, Theatre Re is a London-based international ensemble creating thought-provoking, tangible and poignant work. Its shows examine fragile human conditions, in a compelling, physical style embracing mime, theatre and live music.
While the medium of performance may be an unusual resource for the transmission of science, it shines a light on issues around memory that offers a new perspective.
The Nature Of Forgetting will be prsented at the Pleasance Courtyard (Forth) as part of the Edinburgh Festival from 3rd August at 12:00 (not 14th).
