Hanbury & Groves: A Time of Listening

Mind games – the frailty of memory
Director Rebecca Hanbury and composer Alex Groves are an inventive and free-spirited theatre-making duo.
Their new work explores the fallibility and frailty of human memory. What happens when the precision of memory fails us? How does our mind edit and interpret long-distant, semi-forgotten experiences (joy, pain, excitement and regret) to shape our life stories and define the people we are – or the people we would like to be? Drawing on scientific research, they experiment with sound and music, technology and theatrical techniques to foster a feeling of fleeting illusions, of things forgotten, falsely conjured, cherished and obsessed over. A world where nothing is quite what it seems…
All sessions in the Festival of New last about an hour.
Food will be available in the Concert Hall Café on Friday and Saturday 10am – 7.30pm. The Britten Studio Bar opens an hour prior to the evening performances and will stay open afterwards.
