Join us for our first presentation of our 2016-17 Season’s Neo-Lab Original Works Residency.
Ensemble Member Kirsten Riiber and Memory Care Therapist Alex Schwaninger will discuss and demonstrate the process of memory loss through interviews and personal narrative.
Tangles & Plaques attempts to demystify the experience of dementia in the language of theatre— offering a vivid, poignant, participatory experience that is unique to each audience and different every night. Ensemble Member Kirsten Riiber and Memory Care Therapist Alex Schwaninger will discuss and demonstrate the process of memory loss through interviews and personal narrative about the life and death of memories; the ways they persist, the ways they depart and the various ways they distort over time. Neo-Lab is an original works residency that annually commissions one new play anchored by innovative approaches to creation and shares public readings and presentations of the work in progress.
Workshop presentation: Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 7:30 p.m.
Tangles and Plaques is a machine designed to transform a memory from a detailed scene to an abstracted nightmare or dreamscape. Kirsten Riiber wrote this. Get acquainted.
