      I’ve Lost You Only To Discover That I Have Gone Missing

      During 2017 Beatrice Allegranti Dance Theatre created bespoke participatory dances for people living with the rare diagnosis of young onset dementia and their families. This dance theatre work in progress emerges from the stories shared and relationships forged. An international cast of four dancers: Luke Birch (UK), Sabrina Gargano (Italy), Takeshi Matsumoto (Japan), Aneta Zwierzynska (Poland) take to the stage to share the impact of these autobiographical dementia stories on their own bodies. Through a choreographic blend of dance theatre woven with Jill Halstead’s commissioned soundscore the audience is invited to bear witness to the challenges faced when engaging with wider existential and ethical taboos that the dementia stories have provoked: loss (of self; language; identity; relationship), fractured intimacy, caring for self-other, safety and consent. This dance theatre work in progress offers audiences an embodied kinship – allowing for the ineffable experiences of dementia to be collectively shared.
