Tangles & Plaques

Created by Kirsten Riiber

Directed by Jen Ellison


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 performance. Ensemble Member Kirsten Riiber and Memory Care Therapist Alex Schwaninger discuss and demonstrate the process of memory loss through interviews and personal narrative about the life and death of memories; how they persist, when they depart and the 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. Sponsored with libations from Metropolitan Brewery, the cast, featuring Kaitlyn Andrews, Ida Cuttler, Justin Deming, Mike Hamilton, Nick Hart, and Kirsten Riiber, gather for a reception before and after the showing.
