“Happy Memorial Day of Time. I wish you remember not.”
Memorial Day of Time creates a multi-sensory theatrical experience for the audience, experimenting with the five senses and the language of movement.
On the Memorial Day of Time, the creatures of the ‘time forest’ will come out and greet the most curious mortals with a feast, not of worldly delicacy, but of pieces of cooked time, time that had gone from the future into the past. Every piece of time encapsulates a memory of a stranger and, when reaching a taste bud, releases it through your senses. By inviting the audience into the ‘ecosystem of memory’, the project, based on a magical realistic short story, tells a moving story about nostalgia, forgetting and moving on.
