Layering theater, dance, spoken word and an original score inspired by Hip Hop, Klezmer and Mexican folk music, Amnesia tells the story of a young man who retraces his family’s migration from a small village in Eastern Europe through New York’s Lower East Side to Phoenix, Arizona, only to find that the violence his family fled cannot be so easily forgotten.
