A poignant story of a mother with young-onset dementia, and her daughter, told through dance, music and poetry.
Dementia is a terrible, isolating condition. It can rip people away from themselves and their loved ones. But if we learn to adapt our communication we can still reach each other, no matter how fleeting the moment. In that message, there is hope for those learning to cope with dementia.
This interactive experience will take you on a journey, from the making of the dance to the messages it portrays. It shares views of the dementia journey from people with personal experience. After the dance, there will be a q&a session with artists and dementia experts, including Professor Chris Kennard, who specialises in clinical neurology at the University of Oxford.
This event is for the Dancin' Oxford Dance Festival 2019 and Brain Awareness Week 2019. It is supported with funding from the Oxford City Council.
