The Nature of Forgetting


A resounding success at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Theatre Re’s The Nature of Forgetting is an explosive and moving reflection on what is left when memory fades. Middle-aged Tom struggles in the early stages of dementia. Then, magically, a lifetime of recollection is unlocked by small gestures, objects, and sounds, which his delicate mind eagerly grasps. Performed by a small cast almost entirely without dialogue, the journey unfolds through powerful, exquisitely wrought movement, capturing the fragility of life and the endurance of the human spirit. “Breathtaking and bold…a must see” (Broadway World).
