Whilst a man attempts to unpick a long distant memory, he finds himself struggling to understand his own past, present and future. As memories collide Leo Bill takes us on a passionate, tequila fuelled trip down the strange alleyways of his own remembrance.

Leo Bill will perform this piece having not read the script in over a year. As the actor attempts to recall the performance, the character grapples with the order of his life.

Following the performance, there will be a Q&A with Leo, our resident neurologist & neuroscientist Tim Rittman - who specialises in rare types of dementia - and members from our local community.

Leo Bill is a prolific actor, writer and director based in London. Most known for his performances in the films ‘Rare Beasts’, ‘In Fabric’, ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ ‘28 Days Later’; TV work includes ‘Taboo’, and Leo’s recent theatre performances include ‘Duchess of Malfi’ and ‘ ‘The Tragedy of King Richard the Second at the Almedia, ‘Hamlet’ at the Barbican. This event represents a step into new modes of performance for Bill.

Normal? Festival of the Brain is co-curated by Living Words, Creative Folkestone & Folkestone Fringe. Living Words is an arts & literature charity organisation working with those with a dementia as well as those from isolated backgrounds. Creative Folkestone, is an arts charity dedicated to transforming Folkestone through collective creative activity. We do these festivals to enrich the cultural calendar of our town, bring people together, and connect Folkestone with the wider world. Each year, the Normal? programme and themes are always produced through think-ins, in which anyone is invited to share ideas of what interests them, and what they would like to see happen together.
