An innovative, fun, and touching exploration about the lived experience of memory loss.

I Forgot to Remember to Forget

Presented by No Strings Attached - Theatre of Disability in association with Adelaide Festival Centre

Australia/Australian Premiere

For the first time in Adelaide after a sell-out season at the True Colours Festival in Singapore 2018. An exciting collaboration co-created by performers from No Strings Attached who share their own lived experiences of acquiring a disability through illness, injury or birth.

With touching insight, I Forgot to Remember to Forget explores resilience, how we deal with and accept change, how sometimes we have to re-learn everything and how sometimes we forget it all. It is a reminder of our responsibility as friends, family and a society to remember the value and place of the individual in community, even when they themselves might not remember any more. Simply beautiful.

This is a work that has been gently and delicately brought to life and the result is a deeply touching and enchanting piece of theatre. Shona Benson

Devised, Written and Directed by Alirio Zavarce

Created in collaboration with Michaela Cantwell, Kathryn Hall, Cassie Litchfield, Kym Mackenzie and Duncan Luke
