What happens when our memory fails us? Who do we become when our histories disappear? “How Often Do I Dream…” is a multi-sensory performance experience, exploring how memory functions, how it collapses, and what we become when our memory begins to fade. Story-telling guide Katie Dorian leads you into her Opi’s life, his developing dementia, her own memory failures and the pieces of beauty found among the rubble of a broken mind. Mapping her interactions with her Opi as he slowly disappeared, Dorian shares stories of loss, changing family roles and dissolving family history, allowing the audience to draw universal truths about the nature of memory, identity and family.
