AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A new theatre work for one actor and one musician in an expansive exploration of memory and its loss.

'At the narrative core of this work is the story of the actors parents beginning from the USSR in the 1930s to their Alzheimer’s dementia in 21st Century Australia. 

A testament to a courageous and an imperfect life lived, told through a kaleidoscopic and unpredictable meditation on memory itself.'
