    About

    We tend to believe eyewitnesses, deeming their testimonies to be veritable. But how reliable is our memory? A number of studies have proved that it is not reliable at all: memories can “change”. Literature includes a host of stories dealing with the fickleness, elusiveness of that which we retain in our mind from a variety of vantage points.

    Eyewitnesses are expected to give a true account of an event, but what they remember may be at total variance with reality …

    The production is about storytelling, recollection and great personal as well as historical errors.
