What is currently on at Lyttelton (National Theatre) (V374)


An exploration of the subjects of memory and time. A man alone in his London flat, unable to sleep searches in his memory. Or does he imagine? In 1991 tourists descending a 3000 metre peak discover a shrivelled, naked body emerging from the ice. How old is it? Why is it wearing a strange grass filled shoe? Mnemonic was first seen in Salzburg and Riverside Studios in 1999. It was revived in 2001 and played in Paris, Barcelona and New York where it won six major theatre awards. In 2002 the production toured to Sarajevo, Thessaloniki, Munich, Warsaw, Helsinki, Strasbourg, Lyon and Paris.
