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 Theater Alliance’s Mnemonic:

“a work of theatrical art so richly imagined and so radically transformational that it causes a healing hush to fall over the audience.” — DCMTA

“Theater Alliance’s production of Mnemonic, directed by Colin Hovde, is not just a story of migration, but of who we are as humans…worth watching over and over” — BroadwayWorld

“Graceful, intelligent, occasionally moving and occasionally brilliant, Mnemonic gives us a chance to recognize that we are all children of the same Earth, borne of the same fears and of the same restless desire to move and know.” — DC Theatre Scene
