Theatre Re – “The Nature of Forgetting”

Palmer Auditorium

Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018

"Incredibly beautiful... 'The Nature of Forgetting' is an explosive, joyous celebration of remembering." - Exeunt Magazine

At the intersection of art and science, "The Nature of Forgetting" bursts with creativity, joy and heartache. Theatre Re has created a moving articulation of the countless dimensions of memory and amnesia, linking science with real-life experiences. Through movement of great physicality and compelling live music, "The Nature of Forgetting" is 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; a journey of shining humanity and celebration of a life well lived. A panel discussion will immediately follow the performance.

Presented in collaboration with the Connecticut Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.

To protect the country from the horrors prophesied, the young Prince Segismundo is condemned for all eternity to be shut away from his country and his birthright. Banished to a secret world high in the mountains and cut off from the sun, he can only dream of a life reversed: of palaces, empires, freedom - revenge... A classic from the Spanish Golden Age, Calderón's richly poetic, epic masterpiece explores illusion, reality, fate and destiny against the backdrop of a mythical Polish kingdom.
