Students will work with participants with early-stage dementia, as well as their families and carers. The workshops are part of the course’s Applied Theatre Project, which encourages students to collaborate with specific target groups outside of the course.
The sessions will run on Tuesday afternoons, until mid May and take place at Pavilion Acting Studios, Pavilion Theatre, Bournemouth.
Senior Lecturer for Acting, Jonny Hoskins said of the project: “It’s wonderful for students to have the opportunity to work with people outside of the course.”
Feedback from those involved included: “Working with the students – they are lovely to work with they are really fun and creative, very sparky. I’m feeling very intrigued to do more.”
