THE COLLECTIVE MEMORY PROJECT

Original dance-theater inspired by memories of U.S. military veterans, the performers, and the audience.

  

Arianne MacBean and The Big Show Co. present The Collective Memory Project - original dance-theatre piece inspired by memories of U.S. military veterans, the performers and the audience themselves. This performance event is the culmination of a three-year community performance initiative, and will follow thirteen Memory Movement Workshops held with local veterans at the Ford Theatres and beyond. The work examines memory's effects through time, the agency of remembrance and forgetting, and investigates aspects of the past by which the present is always haunted. Just like memories, no two versions of The Collective Memory Project are alike, as memories of each new audience are incorporated into every presentation.
