Theatre Re presents: The Nature of Forgetting

Buy Tickets

Conceived and Directed by Guillaumo Pigé

Friday, November 2, 8 pm
Bowker Auditorium

"The Nature of Forgetting" offers a glimpse into the challenges of an individual suffering from early-onset dementia. The work tells the story of Tom as his family celebrates his 55th birthday. Yet the textures of his clothes and voice of his daughter plunges Tom into a whirlwind of memories from his past. Theatre Re recreates a theatrical experience that pulls the audience into Tom's struggles to recognize the present. A confluence of frenetic action, live musicians, and evocative moments brings us into close contact with the heartbreaking struggle of Tom and his family to live with a disease that affects a quarter-million Americans today.
