MEMORIA (2021)

Memoria is a poetic, visceral exploration of memory and nostalgia. What do past lives leave behind? What lives within walls and what lives on in our collective present?


An immersive, physical piece set in a beautiful hidden gem, the Albert Walker Hall at the Linacre Methodist Mission.
Built in 1909 it has been recently restored thanks to Heritage Lottery funding, Memoria was the first event in the new space and was created for Physical Fest 2021.

"This was a beautiful, moving, and evocative journey through the time of a building, its people, and their emotions which brought out my own tears of sadness and joy." North West End ★★★★★
