Flow. Tambet Tuisk takes young actors to work with a method he calls flow. This flow, this method, starts from void. I'm lying, it's little more than void - maybe a chewed-up gum or a piece of tape. Anyway, it can be said that there is some kind of irrelevant object equivalent to emptiness. This object leads the actors to a reflection of their own lives as well as to modern society and beyond. How, you ask? Only Tambet, a longtime theatre and film actor, knows this.
Memento is an experimental piece based on the actors themselves. Throughout the play, themselves (who they are), their past (where they have come from), their reactions to the present (where they are) and their gaze at the future (what they dream of) are expressed.

Memento is also a part of Taavet Jansen's research project INDEX which investigates the creation of synergy between viewers and performers of a digitally mediated work of art. Memento is also Taavet Jansen's second peer-reviewed project as part of his doctoral studies at the Estonian Academy of Arts

Memento is a hybrid production. Online viewers can join the show. Personal, interactive, fun. Anyone who wants to watch in a physical space can come. The performances take place in Viljandi and here, online.
