Memory is a contemporary circus project, which aims to study what makes us human: the ability to imagine, and create realities that transform and shape one's experiences. It is a brief exploration into the strange nature of our consciousness. The aim is to put the "naked eye" to the complexity of the brain and its "disorders" in a natural way, to demystify them, approaching them through the contemporary circus. Learning to control impulses, emotions and everything that comes from the imaginary world of each human being is not an easy task, but it is a fight that is fought daily. Is it possible to learn to take advantage of human "disorders"? Who knows, maybe one's "little" disorder can be a superpower?
