How Can I Forget? ()

Presented by

The SummerWorks Performance Festival

Creators: Sook-Yin Lee and Benjamin Kamino and Adam Litovitz
Director: Erika Batdorf


The Lower Ossington Theatre


August 9th, 2013 – August 15th, 2013


A Multimedia Dream created and performed by Sook-Yin Lee with Benjamin Kamino and the assistance of Adam Litovitz.

HOW CAN I FORGET? explores the tension between remembering and forgetting: what we forget that we ought to remember, and what we remember that we want to forget. It is a study of memory through fraught relationships.

From prose to movement, surrealism to documentary, it is a poetic collision unfolding in a dream logic, and a “duet” performed by Lee and Kamino embodying aspects of the same person: naked embryonic twins navigating a primordial womb in a new creation myth. (
