We are what we remember
Remembrance is the story of a woman who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. Part free, educational art installation and part ticketed, immersive show, this program will explore the fracturing memories of Margaret. Come discover her mind on your own time or help celebrate Margaret’s 65th birthday as one of her close friends or family members – either way, visitors will witness the process of forgetting and what happens when our minds are no longer our own.
Please be advised, at Margaret's birthday you will be required to stand, move around, and climb a flight of stairs at different times. Unfortunately her house is not wheelchair accessible. The party will last around an hour and 15 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on how well you know Margaret. Her party does contain some difficult emotional content; we recommend the minimum age to come celebrate with her be 11 years old. However, anyone of any age is welcome to come visit her house and her mind during the free, open hours.
There will be a limited number of free invitations available to Margaret’s birthday day of the party. These allow you to experience the first part of the celebration and they are on a first come, first served basis. Sign-up for these will begin at Margaret’s house at 11am on any day that the party is taking place. To get to Margaret's house you will need to take the Governor's Island Ferry from the Battery Maritime Building in Lower Manhattan (right next to the Staten Island Ferry). The ferry ride takes approximately 8 mins. The ferry is $3 but if you choose to come to the island before noon, the ferry is free! Once you disembark, follow signs for Colonel's Row. Margaret's house is located at 404B and has an American flag out front.
There is a mandatory, free bag check that will be provided before you enter Margaret’s home.
