Almost a travelogue, but not quite.
A group of young travellers embark on a year-long exploration. Where have they gone, and why have they come back? Where are they returning to, and how will they choose to remember their journeys? Through recounting and retelling lived experiences, new meanings are constructed, and a collective story in response to memories. travelling. space. home. is revealed in an intimate, interactive multi-disciplinary performance exhibition.
Through different story-telling methods, this multi-disciplinary work explores memory, travelling and the voices of a generation of twenty-somethings. Re: Almost Left Behind invites the audience to decide what they want to see and do, creating their own memories as they sojourn through the piece with the performers.
