When someone disappears, who becomes the custodian of our experience? pollon is an interdisciplinary piece that explores resilience, memory and how we interpret our surroundings. Formulated with music, anecdotes and interviews with people who have experienced dementia and/or Alzheimer’s, pollon is a work that uses pre-recorded audio; including dialogue, songs, instructions to connect participants to the memories we may have left behind. This work investigates the lost ritual of memory. If our realities are being split into keepsakes, how do we continue to associate ourselves with who we are?
