this is me
‘this is me' is a theatre project aiming to create conversations and raise awareness around the often invisible experiences and unique challenges involved when developing dementia as a young person.
Our story is told from the perspective of the person living with young onset dementia, weaving together a truthful narrative with the extraordinary often surreal expressions of everyday experience.
We are experimenting with puppetry, object manipulation, text and movement to bring these vivid inner and outer lived experiences to life.
It is essential to us that this project is grown from the roots up and we are working closely with the young onset community. We have partnered with Dementia Pathfinders with additional support from Metal, Netpark Wellbeing and Arts4Dementia.
