A is an expert on memory.
K has synesthesia.
But together, they can’t seem to remember that thing…
So they sit and fear a porcelain bathtub, which sits high in the attic.
They go to Cancun, 1992.
They try to find it in a medieval forest.
In the doctor’s office,
At past lectures,
But only nonsense can make sense out of this logic.
Dog Gone Day is a trip inside one person’s intimate memory palace, where travel takes place on neurological impulses, and scenes arrive and dissolve as quickly as the fleeting thoughts in our brain; they have the distinct weight of life altering memories falling like sediment to the floor of our subconscious.
This performance uses a a hazer/fog machine.
