A phenomenal example of true theatrical magic’  Theatre Review NYC

Following more than 150 performances in sold-out venues across the globe, Theatre Re brings its explosive, powerful and joyous piece about what is left when memory is gone, back to the UK.

Tom is living with early onset dementia. We meet him as he prepares for his 55th birthday party and past memories come flooding back.

Developed with UCL Neuroscience Professor Kate Jeffery and the Alzheimer’s Society, The Nature of Forgetting is a life-affirming journey into a weakening mind, where broken does not have to mean defeated.

As one of the UK’s leading visual theatre companies, Theatre Re combines original live music with striking visual theatre to create world class, deeply moving, non-verbal productions about universal human challenges and the fragility of life.

‘Profoundly moving… an action-packed celebration of life’ BBC Radio 4
‘Extraordinary… So special, so surprising… It’s magical’ Sarah Jessica Parker
‘Extremely profound, poetic and communicative’ La Republica
