Imagination and remembering take centre stage this week. How do we create and remember what no longer exists or never did?
Each post touches on some profound and difficult questions facing artists and their responsibility to create and interpret a collective memory and understanding.
Sarah Garton Stanley finds The Gay Heritage Project an impetus to remember her specific heritage with Patrick Conner, our Geographic Correspondent touch on (amongst other things) the controversial topic of staging The Robert Pickton murders, Joel Bernbaum writes on how stories of homelessness can reach the stage through verbatim theatre.
To my mind, imagination is about the future while remembering is about the past. Imagination can keep our past in the present. Remembering can keep our imagination rooted in the here and now. It is all ephemeral – cause this is theatre.
