"Remember This: A Participatory Performance Experience" is designed to spotlight conversations about and perceptions of dementia. The creators worked to research and publicize the humanity, as opposed to solely the tragedy, of the disease by approaching it as a set of interwoven stories to be told using a variety of performance mediums including dance, short-form improvisation, and scripted text derived from interviews. This collaborative approach to creating the performance included consultation with and contributions from scientists working in the field of memory disease. "Remember This" is designed to promote a larger and louder public conversation about people living with dementia as well as the communities (e.g. caretakers, families, community business owners, hospitals, etc.) who care for them.
