Linked Dance Theatre Presents REMEMBRANCE
Linked Dance Theatre produce their eleventh immersive show this Summer. Remembrance is half educational art installation, and half immersive theatre show telling the story of Margaret - a woman living with Alzheimer's Disease - through sound, movement and text.
The work will take place on Governors Island, creating an immersive experience inside one of the historic houses there.
Audience members will be able to explore the house at their own pace for free, or purchase tickets for a 90 minute, intimate, theatrical performance.
The company is committed to making immersive theatre that has deep social impact, and to help open up dialogue and communication around a disease that is all too common, but is not being addressed.
Ccome explore the rooms of Margaret's home, each representing a different part of her memory. Either explore her mind on your own time by visiting the house during the free, open hours or come help celebrate Margaret's 65th birthday as one of her close friends or family members in the immersive show. Either way, you will witness the process of forgetting and grapple with who we become once we no longer remember our lives.
Who do we become, as we start to forget...
This is Margaret's Story. This is Remembrance.
