About Tangles & Plaques

Neo-Lab’s 2016-17 commission, TANGLES & PLAQUES attempts to demystify the experience of dementia in the language of theatre—offering a vivid, poignant, participatory experience that is unique to each audience and different every performance. Ensemble Member Kirsten Riiber, Director Jen Ellison and Memory Care Director Alex Schwaninger conduct a symphony of impossible tasks and egregious forgery with the help of the audience and a cast including Riiber, Kaitlyn Andrews, Ida Cuttler, Justin Deming, Mike Hamilton, Nick Hart and Dan Kerr-Hobert. The ensemble interrogates the life and death of memories— how they persist, when they depart and the ways they distort over time.

Neo-Lab is an original works residency originally launched in 2015 by the National Endowment for the Arts.
