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 family through the moving story of his Polish grandfather. Poems become beats become glitches in a mesmeric display of live drumming and spoken word.
“Original, tender, funny and moving … one of my Fringe picks”
