i can see you there
who I am and where you are
and forgetting this world that has given me those memories of you
remember me please, please remember me
And When I Remember That I Have Forgotten is a celebratory exploration into memory and nostalgia. Through a retro, kitsch-like lens, this work questions the past and challenges how we remember and re-live moments in time.
Exploring personal histories and kinship through persona and collaboration with family members, this live performance is set against a backdrop of a familial gathering. Seeking space for us all to reminisce and have a good old sing-song. (Made for Into The New 2020, this screening is the dress rehearsal footage of what would have been presented at last year’s festival, but due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, it was postponed until now!)

Minnie Crook (she/her) is an emerging performance artist based in Glasgow and a recent graduate of the Contemporary Performance Practice Programme at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Originally from Leamington Spa, she explores ideas of memory as a process of re-discovering her own autobiography, and the distance between herself and her family members. Minnie’s live art utilises visual projection, persona and acapella song, to further understand the past as ‘irretrievable moments’ in time. Questioning personal memory vs the collective recollection, and ultimately confronting how we are shaped by the societal manoeuvrings of the world.
