isthisyours? present an insight into forgetfulness and our desire not to be forgotten. Three characters fight the panic as they explore their own fears and fascinations with forgetting.

LONG DESCRIPTION

One performer steals another’s identity in an action film sequence, another tries to create a lasting legacy through power ballad and one is left clasping her plate self-portraits from kindergarten in fear they’ll be forgotten. Best We Forget is an original work that explores how forgetting impacts upon everyday life and our desire not to be forgotten. On a journey involving panel discussions, film-clip choreography, action film sequences, power ballads and audio commentary, isthisyours? deliver a riotous take on an everyday but sometimes confronting experience.
