"Remember" is an evening length collaborative dance theatre work that explores the powerful and often elusive process of memory, remembering, and forgetting. From Alzheimers and memory loss of our loved ones, to the trauma of domestic violence, to the luminous quality of dreams, this dance piece touches the universal heart of memory expressed through dance, text, song, and theatre.
