Presented by Theatre Re

After the success of its critically acclaimed international hit The Nature of Forgetting, Theatre Re returns with a powerful, poignant and uplifting visual theatre piece exploring the bond between three generations of women, their shared loss, and the strength they discover in each other.

Emily is eight months pregnant when she reads her grandmother’s journal. As she delves into her family history her sense of reality shifts, unveiling a legacy of unspoken tragedies and unconditional love.

Established in 2009, Theatre Re is an internationally acclaimed ensemble creating thought provoking live performances. The company examines fragile human conditions in a compelling, physical style embracing mime, theatre and live music.

This performance has been rescheduled from June 2020.

ART31

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
