The project to date
Inside Out of Mind is an innovative project which has brought together ethnographic researchers with theatre practitioners to tackle the challenge of dementia care.
Writer Tanya Myers and Director Stephen Lowe of Meeting Ground have worked with researchers Simon Bailey and Kezia Scales to create a workshop production which brilliantly illustrates the multiple realities of life on a dementia ward.
In July 2011, an invited audience across a broad spectrum of interest groups saw the work in progress.
The next stage
The Inside Out of Mind MIN (Managed Innovation Network) was established to build on the successful workshop production of Inside Out of Mind and to enable the next phase of development work.
Our ultimate goal is – like the project itself – multi-layered. We aim to create and tour a finished theatre production which reaches the widest audience of general public and to enable greater understanding and better care within the dementia sector.
During 2011-12, the core creative team of writer, director, music director and ethnographers, plan to work with choreography and puppetry to add to the theatricality of the end piece.
How you can help
We are seeking funding to enable us to develop the next stage of creative research and development, and to deliver our vision of a completed, touring theatre production of this groundbreaking work.
