About This Show
Memory is not fixed. It is an imaginative act. Nothing stays the same, why should memory? Drawing on history, science, literature, personal stories, and fiction, Terence Mickey sets out to understand how dependent we are on memory to understand our lives. And with the slippery nature of memory, how do we be OK with not always knowing?
If you're curious, welcome to Memory Motel.

In the early 1950's, renowned dancer and choreographer Merce Cunningham produced a series of solo dances, one of which was called "Changeling." Merce never taught it to any one else, and when the performances stopped less than ten years later, the dance disappeared. With the discovery of a video of the dance in 2014 by director Ala Kovgan, we explore, through the legacy of Merce Cunningham, how dance is particularly susceptible to decay, how it is remembered, and how bring back work that wasn't necessarily meant to be recreated.
