What would you do if you could return to a memory and change it? Would it affect your future? Could you rewrite a part of your own history?
RECALL is a one-to-one live mediated performance which invites you to create a new memory and re-write a moment in your personal history based on your own desires and imaginations.
In the field of neurology, scientists have identified that the human mind inserts information from the present into past memories. When recalled the memories become reinterpreted to adapt in an ever changing environment re-framing moments of a person’s life. Unlike a film which relays a recorded event as it was captured, the human memory edits information to present a story which fits into a person’s present reality.
RECALL was presented at SPILL FESTIVAL OF PERFORMANCE 2015
