The human story is the story of migration. Through potent physicality, inventive design, and striking visuals, Mnemonic reminds us of our interconnectedness in a world where people are still moving, whether by choice or circumstance. Theater Alliance’s production will update the piece with American touchstones and 21st century technology, to highlight the universality and timelessness of the quest to learn where we are from and where we are going.

Praise for Mnemonic:

“Memory, as ”Mnemonic” keeps suggesting, is never to be trusted. But I somehow think I’ll recall this particular image for the rest of my life.” — The New York Times

“I think about the world differently now than when I entered the theatre, and I know that I shall remember Mnemonic all my life.” — The Guardian

“is as visually and mentally stimulating an evening of theater as you’re likely to find” — Curtain Up

“this work is political. There are no overt political references, but it is conjoining us to go on a quest of self-discovery; to see ourselves against the backdrop of the global powers shaping our lives. And, in its style, it is an encouragement to open ourselves up to the senses, to human compassion, understanding. And, as they used to say: ‘The personal is political’.” — British Theatre Guide
