Memorandum – Brave New Work

Solo performer Kate Hunter lays bare the gothic, peculiar, and slightly neurotic world of remembering and forgetting.

Memorandum is a hybrid theatre performance: part memoir, part poem, part kaddish. Using a radical audio structure in which live and pre-recorded narratives simultaneously intersect, converge and diverge, Memorandum examines the ways our memories deform and become misshapen over time, how truths and fictions unknowingly intertwine.

Solo performer Kate Hunter creates an intimate, immersive and disturbing piece, driven by a compelling soundscape and a striking visual design, in which one woman lays bare the gothic, peculiar, and slightly neurotic world of remembering and forgetting.

 ‘Kate Hunter conjures striking images … the final image is haunting.’
Rebecca Harkins-Cross, The Age.

‘Hunter’s … words have that trained liveness … to allow each recollection a moment’s return.’John Bailey, RealTime​​.

‘Hunter’s performance is outstanding…a compelling self examination of one’s own mind and memory.’Lisa Romeo, Toorak Times.

Memorandum was supported by Theatre Works and its Selected Works program.
