Forgetting Natasha is an immersive multi-layered performance using dance, poetry and digital media, that delves into the touching and poetic story of one woman’s experience of losing her memory to the onset of early dementia.
Director Heather Eddington and writer Anna Mae Selby explore the notion of identity. Will Natasha be the same person without her memories? If she can’t remember, how can she exist?
A potentially difficult subject matter is tackled with elegance and skill, alongside the beautiful imagery the dancers relive her memories and tell her story. Forgetting Natasha challenges the audience’s senses through dance, spoken word and the latest digital and live animation techniques. For this new work State of Flux Artistic Director Heather Eddington joins forces with internationally acclaimed video artists KMA (past collaborations include DV8’s To be Straight With You and Phoenix Dance Theatre’s Eng-er-land).
