Mnemonic image

mnemonic / ni’monik / adj. 1. assisting or intended to assist memory; 2. of memory
A body is found in the ice, and a woman is looking for her father while a man searches for his lost lover.
This story is as much about origins as it is about memory, and remembering what is lost. Mnemonic asks: what is our place in the natural world? How have human relationships with the environment shaped patterns of migration? Who are we, and where do we come from?
25 years after its first staging, Complicité’s ‘Astonishing, transfixing, transcendent’ (New York Times) production returns to the National Theatre. Simon McBurney (Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead) directs.
