The Memorandium  blends interactive, improvised storytelling with objects, puppetry, and an installation set. Audience members are encouraged to feel ownership of, and inclusion in, the performance throughout. A dynamic theatrical experience, this season of The Memorandium features and utilises some of our latest social networking technology, as an after-show feature of the performance. This is a brand new new method of interaction in our arts landscape, and Barking Spider Visual Theatre is exploring the impact it can have.

Percussionist/Composer – Leah Scholes
Set and Lighting Design and Co-Director – Jason Lehane
Puppetry Director and Designer – Dan Goronszy

"Such an excellent performance! Thank you! You bring beautiful soul memories to my thoughts."

"I found it so wonderful to hear the audience talk about their connection to objects.  A very personal and familiar space to be in with some wonderful forays into absurdity."

"Very gripping. Very clever. I wanted to know what was going to happen next!"

Please note: this show runs for 60 minutes, with no interval. It is suitable for all ages.
