Mnemonic by Theatre de Complicite

Book Description

A play and production from one of the world's most innovative theatre companies Mnemonic is about memory, people's personal histories, shared memories and discordant recollections - exhuming the past in order to examine it in the present. A variety of stories - from the discovery of bog people like Tollund Man to peoples compulsion to retrace the origins of their ancestors - collide and form a piece of theatre which questions our concept of time, our capacity to distort history and our attempts to retell the past. "An ice-preserved body - from 5,200 years ago - forms the central image of Theatre de Complicite's dazzlingly imaginative meditation on memory and morality. Timely and unforgettable" (Independent)

The "Street of Crocodiles" creates a vision of provincial Poland in the early part of the century as a restless ocean of unending flux. "Three Lives of Lucie Cabrol" offers an unsentimental evocation of peasant life, while an ice-preserved body forms the central image of "Mnemonic".
