A new Du theatre original, written and directed by Simone Spiteri.
What would life be if we could tap into every memory stored in our brain at will? If we could reconnect with every single thing that has happened to us; whether it was something we enjoyed, hated, feared or that we have come completely forgotten? Given a choice which specific memories would you choose to revisit again?
Forget-Me-Not is Danny's story. A normal, routine-obsessed man whose life seems to tick all the right boxes without ruffling any feathers. But his life changes when he randomly spots someone on his work commute that looks uncannily like someone from his past. Someone he had completely, or almost, forgotten about. Danny embarks on a dangerous journey into his past- but the deeper he sinks into it, the more he loses touch with the present, running the risk of having no future at all.
2014 is Dù Theatre's 10th year anniversary and this is the first of a series of projects to celebrate this event. Keeping collaborations at the core of the group's ethos Forget-Me-Not is a collaboration between resident Dù members Simone Spiteri and Magda van Kuilenberg, dancers Elise Ellul and Yosef Farrugia and musicians Tim Ellis from local folk band Stalko (also Dù's music director since its inception) and Chris Galea who needs no introduction as an amazing actor but who is an equally talented musician.
The play will run at MITP theatre in St. Christopher street Valletta on the 15th, 16th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd February 2014 at 8pm. The Opening night will be followed by a small reception with free wine and nibbles. Tickets may be bought from St James Cavalier on 21223200 or firstname.lastname@example.org For more information on the group and the production you can like the company’s facebook page or follow the production blog on http://dutheatre.wordpress.com/
