We can not completely rely on our memories, and yet, there is no other reality than the one that we carry with us in memory. Each moment we live gets its importance from the past. Present and future would lose all meaning if the past was erased from our consciousness. Between ourselves, and nothing, is our ability to remember.

NIE has made its own movable museum building, made up out of 70 m2 of rusty drawers. Inside this room five people reconstruct a life that has ended. Two brothers, a neighbour, a teacher and a lover. With warmth, humour and music, they tell stories about the one they have lost. A brother, a student, a neighbour boy, the first love. The audience sits close together inside the intimate venue, that resembles an archive, and experience the actors and stories closely. After the performance, the rusty drawers open to reveal an exhibition, the space turns into a small museum, a room for reflection with different sensory experiences that can awaken associations for our own lives and own memories.

Supported by Arts and Culture Norway, Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Arts Council England. The project was supported by the EEA and Norway Grants 2014–2021.
