Kompani Krapp and its partner The Dignity Centre want more knowledge and understanding about dementia and wish to tell a slightly different story about the disease. The portrayal of dementia often carries the mark of loss, isolation, loneliness and the enormous financial burden a dementia patient is on society. This performance focuses on the healthy aspects that reside inside patients who are living with dementia.
‘It’s about being seen, listened to and heard. But it’s also about seeing and meeting others with curiosity – those you meet for the first time or those you have known for a lifetime,’ says Kristine Nordby Simonsen, one of the founders of Kompani Krapp.
The performance is presented in Norwegian without surtitles.
