We all relive our memories from time to time. But why – what do we gain from revisiting the past?
Part one-to-one and part group encounter, Re: Memory challenges the way we share our memories, from the deeply private to the very public.
With every audience member helping to write the show they will experience, we invite you on a slightly terrifying – but mostly exciting – leap between ‘then’ and ‘now.’
Suitcase Civilians was founded in 2014 by Sepy Baghaei, with the ethos of creating easily transportable, tour-ready works in a variety of styles. Their debut production Re: Memory toured to London, Sydney and Sheffield in 2015. It was described as ‘thoroughly adventurous and quite wonderful’ (Suzy Wrong) and ‘the alternative theatre experience you have been waiting for.’ (Upstaged Reviews).
As well as continuing to tour Re: Memory, in 2016 Suitcase Civilians will present three new works. The first is Wilde Tales, an adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s short stories, which features as part of The Space’s spring season in London. Following that, they will present Click Café, a virtual one-to-one performance exploring online identity, as part of the Anywhere Festival in Brisbane. Finally, they will premiere Prometheus and Huma, a new play about the experiences of children growing up with migrant parents in Australia.
