A new sensory performance for people living with dementia and their carers, created by participatory theatre company Spare Tyre.
Join us for an interactive, sensory experience for people living with dementia and their carers.
In the span of an hour, we explore a day in the life of a working beach - its myths, magic, perils and ever-changing beauty, drawing on rich traditions the world over. We use dance, music and interactive visual storytelling to engage all the senses. In 2024, we are still within touching and telling distance of people who worked the shores before plastic, their skills still evident from boatbuilding to fishmongering and net-mending. We meet people who haul and heave, knit and knot and wait on the shore for those whom the songs of the sea are a lived reality. 11.30am -12.30pm
After the performance, there is also the opportunity to take part in a workshop.
Its a creative workshop giving participants, family members and carers the opportunity to contribute to the visual and tactile world of the show. 2.30-3.30pm
All tickets are for one adult living with dementia and include a carer.
You can book for either the talk or the workshop separately, or for both.
Please contact the museum if you have any issues with booking or questions about the event.
To make this event more accessible we are trialling a sliding pay scale for ticketing with a suggested price, a higher and lower option so that you can pay what you can afford. Please bear with us if there are any issues with this and get in touch if you require assistance.
