How We Lived Then

Auditorium 115 Plan, Saturday 28 Jul 2018, 11:00  - ends at 13:00

FYTG and Dramatic Impact present this intergenerational project for up to 12 participants aged between 11-19. The workshops will entail receiving training and guidance on how to communicate with and what to expect from older people with dementia. Small groups will go with the workshop leaders into up to three local care homes to speak to residents about their lives at the equivalent age of the participants. Using this material the participants will work to create a short show in the style of ‘workers playtime’ under the guidance of the leaders, both professional actors and workshop providers. These shows will then be performed to the care home residents. In order for the public to see what was created, and the benefits gained, the show will be performed at the Fisher Theatre
