Presented by Eamonn Fleming in association with LittleMighty.
A comedy about memory and making stuff up.
Every act of remembering is an act of storytelling. So here's mine.
It starts with a spotty teenager at a Motorhead gig and ends at the cutting edge of memory research.
The bellowing fans, the smell of beer and sweat, the thunderous music. When I think back, it's all so vivid. And it's all completely made up.
Join me, Eamonn Fleming, writer, performer and 'O' level Biologist (Grade C), as I stumble through the amazing worlds of Memory Palaces, False Memories and Werther's Originals. Slides will be projected (old school), sweets will be handed out (if you’re lucky) and a guitar might be played (if you’re not).
CONFABULATION! is a funny and startling show about not being able to trust a single thing you remember.
Suitable for audiences aged 12 years and over.
