Inspired by Solomon Veniaminovich Shereshevsky and the book The Mind of A Mnemonist by Alexander Luria. The play is an experiential manifestation of Solomon’s world. Everyone is always there. Everything happens at once. And in one moment. It is a fast paced exploration about memory, the senses and ultimately how we experience the world around us. What happens when we remember everything that has ever happened to us?
