James Greaves may have years of mask experience behind him, but it doesn't stop him having first-day-of-rehearsal nerves. If you think an actors life is all hey-diddle-de-dee, check out his very funny blog...
I attended a Listening With Your Eyes workshop on 15th December 2017 and found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable experience. A disparate group of individuals became a focussed team in no time after a couple of hilarious exercises. We learnt the importance of body language, eye contact, facial expression, touch and music in any contact with people suffering from dementia. I was enthralled and uplifted. Thank you.
15 Dec 2017 Interesting and thought provoking session although no one directly in my life has suffered with the condition yet but I come into contact with sufferers volunteering as a driver for a local charity. Discussed after the session whether there might be a role for amateur theatre groups or theatre generally including professional theatre as a “force multiplier” for what you do in this area ... but noted your performances are all mime based ... all the same might it not be possible to ‘adopt’ a playwright/scriptwriter or two (aykbourn, boyle, cerrie burnell [heard on bbc4 this morning] etc etc) to make a play/script that reflects the story you are telling and get it out there to an even wider public by doing it with a powerful script as well as the original mime version. Best wishes - you are doing a great job.
