I saw your production on Finding Joy at the Belgrade Coventry last Saturday. It was absolutely wonderful, my friends and I left the theatre elated. I am not a carer but my son is involved with Magic Me and is also researching the arts and dementia at the Welcome Trust. I have learned from him that feelings are the most important experience for people with dementia. I thought the way you brought this out was brilliant. What seem like random, confused movements being understood was really tender as well as funny.
I had the pleasure of attending your production of FINDING JOY at the Belgrade Theatre on Friday 17th November. I am dementia lead for a large care home company, and have a lot of experience supporting people with dementia and their carers. I found the way you portrayed the lady with dementia was insightful, touching and thought-provoking. So many small touches which just hit the spot, and gave a window into how people with dementia relate to the world around them. The way you linked her reality now to her experiences in the past was beautifully done, and made me think hard. Thank you for a moving and uplifting experience.
