Following a sell-out run at the 2017 London International Mime Festival, Latitude and the Edinburgh Fringe, Theatre Re presents a powerful, explosive and joyous piece about what is left when memory is gone.
Tom is 55, today. As he dresses for his party, tangled threads of disappearing memories spark him into life, unravelling as a tale of friendship, love and guilt.
Established in 2009, Theatre Re is a London-based international ensemble creating thought-provoking, tangible and poignant work that examines fragile human conditions and spans the boundaries of mime and theatre.
Presented in association with Glynis Henderson Productions.
Profoundly moving… An action-packed celebration of life. －Front Row - BBC Radio 4, John Wilson
This is an exceptionally fine piece of high-energy physical theatre. －Edinburgh Guide
Guillaume Pigé, Conceiver and Director

He trained at the Conservatory of Villeurbanne (FR) and the International School of Corporeal Mime in London.

Pigé is an @HOME Artist at The Point, Eastleigh (UK).
Established in 2009, Theatre Re is an award-winning international ensemble based in London.
The name of the company comes from the prefix ‘re’. It is the ‘re’ of re-discovering and re-imagining, breathing new life into what already exists. Its shows examine fragile human conditions in a compelling, physical style embracing mime, theatre and live music, and are often described as magical, poetic and tender as well as disturbing and haunting. Intimate collaborations with experts in different fields – such as science, philosophy and public health - and various community groups throughout the devising process play a crucial part in the development of the work.
Previous productions have toured widely in the UK but also in France, Brazil, Peru, Ireland, Switzerland, Germany, China, South Korea and the US.
GHP represents a variety of theatre, comedy and music productions and has become one of the UK’s leading international production companies specialising in introducing unique and exciting new work to international audiences worldwide and bringing international work to the UK.
Glynis formed Glynis Henderson Productions in 1990 and the company has now produced, toured and general managed over 50 productions around the world. GHP’s work has been nominated for and won a number of awards including an Olivier Award for STOMP and a nomination for Ennio Marchetto.
STOMP continues to tour worldwide having visited 56 countries to date and remains one of the most successful UK touring exports. In 2017, GHP presented A Clockwork Orange in New York after a return sell-out season in London.
GHP continues to find new productions and develop new relationships with companies around the world. The company now represents a total of 16 productions available for international touring and works with partners around the world in territories including Europe, China, India, Australia and many more.
