Description:
The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents Theatre Re: "The Nature of Forgetting" on Wednesday, November 14, 2018.

Born at the intersection of art and science, "The Nature of Forgetting" bursts with creativity, joy, and heartache. Theatre Re collaborated with London neuroscientist Kate Jeffery to create a moving articulation of the countless dimensions of memory and amnesia, linking science with real life experiences.

Through physical theatre and compelling live music, "The Nature of Forgetting" tells 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. It is a journey of shining humanity and the celebration of a life well lived.

"The Nature of Forgetting" premiered in January 2017 at the London International Mime Festival and ran to acclaim in August 2017 at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Conceived and directed by Guillaume Pigé

Tickets can be purchased online, in person at the Moss Arts Center Box Office Monday-Friday from 10 am - 5:30 pm and Saturday 10 am - 4 pm and by phone at 540-231-5300.

Established in 2009, Theatre Re is a London-based international ensemble creating thought-provoking and moving work.

Its shows examine fragile human conditions in a compelling, physical style embracing mime, theatre and live music, and are often described as magical, poetic and tender as well as disturbing and haunting.

The name of the company comes from the prefix ‘re’. It is the ‘re’ of re-discovering and re-imagining, breathing new life into what already exists.

Intimate collaborations with experts in different fields – such as science and public health - and various community groups throughout the devising process play a crucial part in the development of the work.

Our productions have toured widely in the UK but also in France, Brazil, Peru, Ireland, Switzerland and Germany
