‘Living with dementia is like knitting with knots. My knitting might not look like it used to, but that doesn’t mean it’s not beautiful.’ This theatre event explores the themes of hope, fear, family and creativity. We look at how emotions are experienced at different times and in different ways by people with dementia and those caring for them. The piece has been developed collaboratively by theatre makers, researchers, carers and people living with dementia. We draw on both personal testimony and current research. The performance will be followed by an audience discussion. People will have the opportunity to pose questions to the production team, provide feedback on the performance andshare their own experiences.
