Conceived and Directed by Wei-Shan Lai

The Brain changes itself all the time. This process underlies our ability to learn and adapt. But sometimes it makes us feel disconnected between our perception and the reality. It takes time to realize that what you remember does not exist anymore. What Do I Remember is a dance theatre work that explores stories of loss and how they resonate with our current existence, how our brain change in the process of healing.

Conceived and directed by Wei-Shan Lai in collaboration with Dr. Yu-Wei Wu, a neuroscientist at Stanford University, media designer Olivia Ting, and scenic designer Chih-Wei G.V. Chang, this piece incorporates multimedia installation of brain and living cells to represent the processes of brain dynamics. Performed by Yuko Monden, Kiplinn Sagmiller, Dwayne Scheuneman, and David James Silpa.
