memoryhouse is a physical exploration of the subconscious - seeking to connect the inner workings of memory and consciousness to the palpable realm.
memoryhouse visits these various ‘sites’ of memory, some dreamlike, others traumatic, many fractured - as if paging through layers of thought - archive - imprint - translucent pages bound by repetition. The work immerses the viewer in a dreamscape where the tension between reality and remembering collides in an infinite loop.
Created for the stage, and with original score by Matthijs van Dijk.
memoryhouse is supported by the National Lotteries Commission, the National Arts Council, and the South African State Theatre's Kucheza Afrika Festival, in partnership with the Baxter Theatre Centre.
