About the Show
What do we do when the memory of who we used to be overshadows who we have become? Blending dance and text, disremember follows one couple as they move in and out of these memories, both destructive and nostalgic.
disremember was written by Shannon McPhee and the direction and choreography are a collaboration between McPhee and Joshua R. Pyne.
