11/2 Peformance by Theater Re: “The Nature of Forgetting”

November 2 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The UMass Fine Arts Center presents a Peformance by Theater Re: “The Nature of Forgetting” Followed by Q&A with Neuroscientists and Performers.
“The Nature of Forgetting” offers a glimpse into the challenges of an individual suffering from early-onset dementia. The work tells the story of Tom as his family celebrates his 55th birthday. Yet the textures of his clothes and voice of his daughter plunges Tom into a whirlwind of memories from his past. Theatre Re recreates a theatrical experience that pulls the audience into Tom’s struggles to recognize the present. A confluence of frenetic action, live musicians, and evocative moments brings us into close contact with the heartbreaking struggle of Tom and his family to live with a disease that affects a quarter-million Americans today.
$35, $25; Five College Students and Youth 17 and Under: $10; Under40TIX $25

Following the performance, there will be a question and answer session with the performers and UMass Neuroscientists Rebecca Ready and Paul Katz

This performance is the culmination of the UMass Week of Memory and Forgetting.
