Theatrical hall of mirrors on dementia


Schlosstheater Moers

15. October 2009

VERGISSMEINNICHT is a theatrical hall of mirrors – surprising, weird and frightening, but also funny. A female dancer and male actor find themselves in a series of situations in which different aspects of a personality altered by dementia are explored.
Interviews with dementia patients form the basis for these absurd and comical encounters of a man with doctors, nurses, relatives and, last, but not least, the woman who looks like his mother – but seems to be somebody altogether different.

VERGISSMEINNICHT takes up and continues in its own way the campaign ERINNERN-VERGESSEN: KUNSTSTÜCKE DEMENZ, conducted by the Schlosstheater Moers in 2005. This campaign, which was awared several prizes, offered new approaches to the delicate theme of dementia by theatrical means.
