At the intersection of art and science, The Nature of Forgetting bursts 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. Through movement of great physicality and compelling live music, The Nature of Forgetting is 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. Theatre Re's productions examine the fragility of life in a captivating style that embraces mime, theatre and live music.
