Sunflower Philly | Philadelphia, PA

Recollection at the 2022 Philadelphia Fringe Festival
About this Event

If you knew that one day you would lose all of your memories- would you approach each day differently? Through a devised, interactive dance-theater piece that incorporates the five senses, contact improvisation, recycled material, photographs, olives, original music, and suitcases, a group of wanderers will reinvent the space of Sunflower Philly and call upon a diverse audience to reminisce together and contemplate how life experience and the passage of time can simultaneously shape us and break us down.

In the wake of a COVID-19 Diagnosis (pre vaccination), creator Lauren Ackermann began experiencing persistent impairment of sustained attention, memory loss, and overall cognitive damage. As the pandemic progressed, neurologists began to classify these symptoms as “brain fog” but until then, because studies had yet to record the correlation, Ackermann attributed these experiences to recent traumatic events, aging, drug and alcohol use, and genetics and blamed herself for the condition. Desperately searching for a way to resolve her anxiety, she turned to art and Recollection was born.
