How to Keep Time: A Drum Solo for Dementia

What happens when memories disappear?

Where do they go — and can we get them back?

Using just his voice and a Roland TD-4KP electric drumkit, Antosh Wojcik explores the effects of dementia on speech, memory and motor skills. Assigning rhythms to family members, Antosh attempts to build a ‘voice-percussion gun’ to destroy inherited Alzheimer’s. Poems become beats become glitches in time in this poignant and mesmeric display of live drumming and spoken word.

“Delightfully leftfield and charmingly witty … Wojcik’s performance destabilises categories and renders the line between reality and fantasy blurred”   THE SPEAKERS CORNER
