The Nature of Forgetting.
Following a sell-out run at the 2017 London International Mime Festival, Latitude and the Edinburgh Fringe, Theatre Re presents a powerful, explosive and joyous piece about what is left when memory is gone.
Tom is 55, today. As he dresses for his party, tangled threads of disappearing memories spark him into life, unravelling as a tale of friendship, love and guilt.
Established in 2009, Theatre Re is a London-based international ensemble creating thought-provoking, tangible and poignant work that examines fragile human conditions and spans the boundaries of mime and theatre.
