Show details

Synopsis


It's Emma's final day in her childhood home, but she doesn't know it. Living with mid-to-late stage Alzheimer's, Emma's world has taken on a different dimension.


As boxes are packed around her, Emma rummages through them, encountering objects that take her hurtling into the past.


Searching for a very important tea cup, Emma is led through her house and her life, reliving moments that delight and terrify her.


The clock is ticking, the removal vans are here as Emma encounters a memory that shakes her sense of self.


Described as 'magical realism on stage' Fancy Another? use a unique tapestry of theatrical styles to explore the darkness and absurdity of living with Alzheimer's.


Uncompromising and tender, Shaping Dust asks how our lives and the lives of those closest to us change when we lose our memories.


Fancy Another? has been generously supported by The Alzheimer's Society from the inception of Shaping Dust.


We are continuing to work with the Maaike Palmier-Claus from The Alzheimer's Society and will provide post-show Dementia awareness talks during the run at The Cockpit.
