I Forgot to Remember to Forget: No Strings Attached Theatre of Disability’s World Premiere
I Forgot to Remember to Forget is an experimental theatre piece that investigates memory. It came to life out of an exciting collaboration with four performers who share their sometimes-traumatic experiences of acquiring a disability through illness, injury or birth and explores how we accept the changes. The piece is created in collaboration with Michaela Cantwell, Kathryn Hall, Kobi Taylor, Duncan Luke, Kym Mackenzie and the world premiere in Singapore is supported by Singapore International Foundation (SIF).
