Work

Have you ever told an old story to someone new, and noticed that it had changed since you last told it? Or that someone else has remembered it differently?
Many of us would like to think our memories are fixed—snapshots catalogued in the mind. Research has found that we construct our memories anew each time we recount them.
Meeting explores the retelling of a shared memory, investigating what it means to remember.

” Audience members around me are palpably affected and it’s partly because of his conversational, visceral movement style”
