Description 'On Archaeology': A Discourse on Theatre. "The object is deliberately incomplete. Each action is subject to decomposition, to corrosion through repetition...the action under interrogation is outside the discourse of history... Each relic is (re) discovery but not necessarily a recuperation of the object. On Archaeology is about forgetting as we re-enter memory but acknowledge leaving it behind. We are strangers in our own Pompeii."

Performed as a double bill with "Ostraka". The season presented two new works from Entr'acte Theatre, around the themes of memory, departure, return, and repetition.
