TANGLES & PLAQUES attempts to demystify the experience of dementia in the language of theatre—offering a vivid, poignant, participatory experience that is unique to each audience and different every performance. Based on her experience as the Memory Care Director at a retirement home, Neo-Futurist Kirsten Riiber conducts a symphony of impossible tasks and egregious forgery with the help of the audience and an ensemble of improvisers. Riiber and company interrogate the life and death of memories— how they persist, when they depart, and the ways they distort over time.
