Reminiscence theatre is a creative art form that incorporates drama, storytelling and music to act as a memory trigger. It has great potential in enhancing the quality of life for older participants & audiences suffering with dementia or acquired brain injuries.
Our Intergenerational Sessions
Forget-Me-Not regularly combines reminiscence and education projects in order to bridge the gap between generations and cultures, further promoting inclusion.
This usually involves young people working alongside older people with dementia to make theatre from memories, using their experiences as a source of therapeutic creativity. For example, they might use photographs, newspaper articles or verbatim memories as inspiration for stories or scripts set in an era significant to older person in question.
