“Dziadek? Dziadek? Can you hear me?”
Using just his voice and an electronic drum kit, award-winning spoken word artist Antosh Wojcik explores the effects of dementia on speech, memory and family in his debut work for stage, How to Keep Time.
Subtitled A Drum Solo for Dementia, this 60-minute show is a mesmeric display of drumming and spoken word in which poems become beats and beats become glitches in time. Antosh Wojcik tells the moving story of his Polish grandfather's struggle against vascular dementia and the effect it had on the people around him. What happens when memories disappear? Where do they go and can we get them back? Can I use my drums to communicate with my grandfather?"
