What happens when memories disappear?
Where do they go, and can we get them back?

Using just his voice and a Roland TD-4KP electronic drumkit, Antosh Wojcik explores the effects of dementia on speech, memory and family through the moving story of his Polish grandfather. Poems become beats become glitches in time in a mesmeric display of live drumming and spoken word.


“Moving, entertaining and uplifting,” – Stuart Bartholomew, Verve Festival 

“Delightfully leftfield and charmingly witty,” – The Speakers Corner on Antosh Wojick
