About The Nature of Forgetting

Following more than 150 performances around the world, Theatre Re returns to Shoreditch Town Hall with its explosive, powerful and joyous piece exploring what is left when memory is gone. Tom is living with young onset dementia. We meet him as he prepares for his 55th birthday party and past memories come flooding back. Developed with neuroscience professor Kate Jeffery and the Alzheimer’s Society, The Nature of Forgetting is a life-affirming journey into a weakening mind, where broken does not have to mean defeated. As one of the UK’s leading visual theatre companies, Theatre Re combines original live music with striking imagery and action to create productions about universal human challenges and the fragility of life. The Nature of Forgetting premiered at LIMF’17. BSL Interpreted Performance + Post-Show Discussion - Thursday 19 January This performance will be followed by a discussion with the cast and creative team. Both will be BSL interpreted by Laura Goulden. Age Recommendation: 8+
