What happens when memories disappear?

Where do they go, and can we get them back?

Using just his voice and a Roland TD-4KP electric drumkit, Antosh Wojcik explores the effects of dementia on speech, memory and family through the moving story of his Polish grandfather.

Poems become beats become glitches in a mesmeric display of live drumming and spoken word.

????? ‘Original, tender, funny and moving … one of my Fringe picks’

BRITISHTHEATRE.COM

???? ‘A touching and multi-layered solo performance that asks us to consider the nature of memory, communication and loss … a show that stays with you’

EDINBURGH REPORTER

???? ‘The drums serve as knocks, as heartbeats, and as emotional pleas … It brought me to tears so many times’

BROADWAY BABY

???? ‘An original, thought-provoking piece which will leave you stunned and in awe at the skill displayed’

THE MORTAL FOOL

‘An extraordinary and powerful exploration of what language might be when there are no longer any words … this stunning debut piece needs to be experienced’
