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.
I attended the listening with your eyes workshop. This provided lots of interactive fun and supported developing insight into non verbal communication and tone for use with those experiencing dementia. The facilitation was excellent and I certainly feel I have added to my skills and empathy whilst affirming what I already knew.
