A theatrical homage to love and its resilience, ANAMNESIS explores love's tenacity and its relation to the presence and absence of memory amidst circumstances of destabilising loss and psychological displacement. This play invites audiences into the lives of two Singaporean characters whose relationship is tested as they undergo various periods of change and transitions in their lives while holding onto each other and themselves. It interrogates the adversities of the human condition and the tenacity of individuals and families in times of psychological, mental and emotional disasters. ANAMNESIS is a response to forces of destabilisation, as well as a reflection of the importance and resilience of love against the undercurrents of transition and change as love succumbs to the aftermath of trauma, and the impermanence of things, and memory.
