August 31 - October 31, 2019
Linked Dance Theatre are proud to be producing our 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.
We have been granted the amazing opportunity to present work 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.
As a company, we are committed to making immersive theatre that has deep social impact, and we want to help open up dialogue and communication around a disease that is all too common, but is not being addressed. This is particularly personal for us as a team, as we too have been affected by seeing those we love succumb to Alzheimer's.
You are invited to come 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.
