Created by Thornbury-based artist Jessi Lewis, it marks three years of touring through both rural and urban areas of India, Malaysia and Indonesia. Jessi’s exposure and immersion into local cultures is central to the work.

Jessi began his performance training 12 years ago with Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre Company in Brisbane, he now continues his training here in Melbourne with the Tony Yap Company.

In Momento, audiences are offered a simple meal that is cooked on stage, representing not only the vibrant cultures local to these regions, but more so the kindness and generosity experienced while traveling abroad. During his time abroad, Jessi has danced in the slums of Delhi, lit fires in UNESCO world heritage sites, and made life-long friends in the small village of Jambu in East Jawa.
