In a book, a narrator steps out of an accident which he can remember nothing about. It scattered his memories like a flock of scared pigeons. One by one, he waits for the pigeons to return. One day, in the bathroom of a house party he sees a crack in the wall. A trigger to the forgotten world of an inhabited building. Dislocated and vivid, the remembered life of this building is the closest he has been to feeling ‘real’ since it happened. If only he could live inside these half-remembered moments, inhabit them, become the director of a vast theatrical reconstruction of the script splintering outwards from the crack inside his head.

Analogue’s live event for an audience of five is inspired by a reading of Tom McCarthy’s ground-breaking underground novel Remainder (2005). The audience will join them inside a meta-theatrical investigation into the nature of ‘rehearsing’ and the problem of authentically inhabiting the world. 

Everything Must Leave Some Kind of Mark is a work in progress as part of the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award finalists' showcase, a chance to catch a glimpse of the original ideas of a new generation of artists.
