Overview

A play and production from one of the world's most innovative theatre companies




Mnemonic is about memory, people's personal histories, shared memories and discordant recollections - exhuming the past in order to examine it in the present. A variety of stories - from the discovery of bog people like Tollund Man to peoples compulsion to retrace the origins of their ancestors - collide and form a piece of theatre which questions our concept of time, our capacity to distort history and our attempts to retell the past.

"An ice-preserved body - from 5,200 years ago - forms the central image of Theatre de Complicite's dazzlingly imaginative meditation on memory and morality. Timely and unforgettable" (Independent)

About the Author

Theatre de Complicite was founded in 1983 by Simon McBurney, Annabel Arden and Marcello Magni. They have created more than 27 productions, touring to over 180 cities in 41 countries over 4 continents - winning over 25 major international awards. Complicite have worked with a variety of collaborators , crossing different media in pieces that range from adaptations of writings and short stories throu gh reinterpretations of classic texts to major devised pieces such as MNEMONIC. Their recent product ions have included THE STREET OF CROCODILES, THE CHAIRS, THE THREE LIVES OF LUCIE CABROL and THE CAU CASIAN CHALK CIRCLE.
Founded in 1983, Complicite is a constantly evolving ensemble of performers and collaborators, now led by Artistic Director Simon McBurney. Complicite's work has ranged from entirely devised work to theatrical adaptations and revivals of classic texts. The Company has also worked in other media; a radio production of Mnemonic for BBC Radio 3, collaborations with John Berger on a radio adaptation of his novel To The Wedding for BBC Radio and The Vertical Line, a multi-disciplinary installation performed in a disused tube station, commissioned by Artangel. Always changing and moving forward to incorporate new stimuli, the principles of the work have remained close to the original impulses: seeking what is most alive, integrating text, music, image and action to create surprising, disruptive theatre.
