Until We Forget is an autobiographical dance theater piece composed of bedtime stories and romantic tangents, including a poignant story about my great-grandfather, Sylvester Dobrowolski. In this illustration of memory, love, and loss, we play with the relationship between language, imagination, and movement. In the research that fed this project, I considered the presence of my family's past, how memories solidify and transform in their retellings, the power of story, and the here and now.
