Tangles & Plaques

Thursday, October 12, 2017 - 7:30pm to Saturday, November 18, 2017 - 9:30pm

Neo-Lab’s 2016-17 commission, Tangles & Plaques attempts to demystify the experience of dementia in the language of theatre—offering a vivid, poignant, participatory experience that is unique to each audience and different every performance. Creator Kirsten Riiber* and Director Jen Ellison+ conduct a symphony of impossible tasks and egregious forgery with the help of the audience and a cast including Riiber, Kaitlyn Andrews, Ida Cuttler*, Justin Deming, Mike Hamilton, Nick Hart* and Dan Kerr-Hobert.* With guidance from Memory Care Director Alex Schwaninger, a professional counselor at the local Bethany Retirement Community, the ensemble interrogates the life and death of memories— how they persist, when they depart and the ways they distort over time.
