From Analogue website: In 2009 Patient H.M.’s brain is dissected live on the internet to a global audience of 400,000 people, cut into carefully preserved slices: manuscripts of tissue like the pages of a book.In 1953 Henry Molaison emerges from experimental brain surgery without any recollection of the last two years of his life or the ability to form new memories. Following Analogue's critically acclaimed Mile End and Beachy Head and inspired by the world’s most important neuroscientific case-study, 2401 Objects tells the remarkable story of a man who could no longer remember, but who has proven impossible to forget. The show won a Fringe First award at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and tours the UK and Europe during Spring 2012. An Analogue, Oldenburgisches Staatstheater and New Wolsey Theatre co-production.
