Fringe Festival: Dark Matter

People say your whole life flashes in front of your eyes before you die but what happens when you have dementia? Where does the brain go before we die? Alfi, an elder astrophysicist with dementia guides us into his universe, a world of star constellations. Dark matter theory and black holes merge in a race against the clock to distinguish fantasy from reality and discover meaning.

After a full house run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017 and a weekly run at “A piece of the continent Festival” at Tristan Bates theatre in 2019, Dark Matter goes on European Touring.
