Memory Loss Inside is a cinematic translation of the successful performance Memory Loss. It is not a registration, it sketches a new perspective on the performance, the third creation from The Memory Loss Collection, the triptych on the theme of dementia.
Instead of the regular stage perspective, the film offers the viewer the opportunity to experience the piece through the eyes of the performers. With footage made by cameras on the performers, you are taken on a confusing and alarming journey through a world that falls apart into fragments. In a search for something to hold on to, elements from the original performance pass by like memories.
Memory Loss Inside is the winner of the Cinedans 2022 Performance Relay & Camera Rework Competition.
