A beautiful blend of art and science, The Nature of Forgettingbursts with creativity, joy and heartache. Collaborating with London neuroscientist Kate Jeffery, Theatre Re has created a moving articulation of the countless dimensions of memory and amnesia, linking science with real-life experiences.
Told through movement and compelling live music, The Nature of Forgettingis the story of Tom, a middle-aged father struggling in the early stages of dementia. The piece, and Tom’s memories, are a life-affirming journey into a weakened mind, where broken does not have to mean defeated. A journey of shining humanity and celebration of a life well lived.
Established in 2009 by actor and director Guillaume Pigé, Theatre Re is quickly becoming an international standard-bearer for powerful physical productions on the human condition. The name of the company comes from the prefix “re,” as in re-discovering and re-imagining or breathing new life into what already exists.
