In Memory of Leaves
The world is burning. You say nothing. But to ask me about the weather.
In Memory of Leaves is an uncompromising monologue about love and protest, performed on a boat by Natasha Langridge.
In the wake of the destruction of her home on the Wornington Green Estate in North Kensington, Natasha gets arrested with Occupy Democracy, volunteers in the refugee camp in Calais and forms a relationship with a cherry tree.
Framed by an unsettling love affair, In Memory of Leaves explores what happens to communities when they are moved from their homes. It is personal and bracing; a love note to neighbours and a revolutionary call to the world.
Winner of the Meyer Whitworth Award (Shraddha, Soho Theatre ), Natasha Langridge will be touring the show across three London boroughs, mooring the boat at Meanwhile Gardens in Kensington, Camden Lock and Hackney Wick.
