Alice travels across Europe with a battered Russian watch trying to track down her estranged father. On the mountains of the Italian-Austrian border, hikers descending a 3000 metre peak stumble on Otzi the Iceman, preserved there for 5000 years. In London, Virgil is piecing together memories of a fractured relationship, and waiting for Alice’s call.
First devised by pioneering theatre company Complicite, Mnemonic catches and entangles the memories it finds as it criss-crosses characters, places, and history. In its web of fragmented stories, the past blurs with the imagined as it is remembered and retold. It is beguiling, hallucinogenic, and hilarious.
An intimate and epic examination of memory, the original storyteller.
