What happens when memories disappear? Where do they go, and can we get them back? Using just his voice and a Roland TD-4KP electronic drumkit, Antosh Wojcik explores the effects of inherited Alzheimer’s on speech, memory and family. Poems become beats become glitches in time in a mesmeric display of live drumming and spoken word.

Antosh Wojcik is a resident artist at the Roundhouse and member of poetry collectives Kid Glove and Burn After Reading. He has performed at venues and festivals including Camden People’s Theatre, Edinburgh International Book Festival, Glastonbury, Latitude and Bestival. How to Keep Time is his first solo show.
