Raising the Curtain is a ground-breaking multi-year research project that combines Community-based Participatory Research with Community Engaged Arts Practice to explore the question: “What is the lived experience of dementia?” through the ideas, creativity and perspectives of those living it.
FIFTH WORKSHOP SERIES & LIVE EVENTS (IN A TIME OF SOCIAL DISTANCING) SPRING 2020
In March 2020, Raising The Curtain had to pause the face-to-face creative workshops and rehearsals due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Our team took a short hiatus to adjust to life in the world of physical distancing, and to reimagine what a theatrical presentation could look like in this new context.
After considering all options (including postponement), we decided that The Show Must Go On! And so… after five weeks of ZOOM workshops between artists/facilitators, participants and their care partners, the re-imagining led to…
BACKSTAGE PASS! a virtual on-line extravaganza of research, puppetry, dialogue, music, discussion, sculpture and so much more.
