Deep River

World Première: 17th of January 2018

It is journeys to forgotten places and times. Try To Remember takes the spectator on a trip which defies the logic of time and space. A camping site becomes a universe filled with pictures and memories. Here times of the day can change within seconds, tents can fly and sleepwalkers start to dance. Möllmer and Tien dedicate themselves with Try To Remember to the feeling of uncertainty and suspense.

To be a stranger, homeless between the worlds. How does that feel?
