My silence will not protect me now, my voice is out.

This Arts Council England and Surrey Arts/Dance 21 supported dance theatre production is grounded in the autobiographical experiences of people’s diverse relationships. The work emerges directly from the Moving Kinship hubs with families affected by young onset dementia. In probing the complexities of dementia, this dance theatre production tackles social and medical taboos about loss, intimacy, vulnerability, consent and othering – inviting audiences to re-imagine everyday relating as small acts of embodied resistance. Informed by ongoing feminist research, the work considers that dementia-friendly values are ubiquitous and can enrich our perceptions and relating in human and more-than-human ways. Since the work-in-progress tour to 11 venues during 2017-18 (UK, Norway, The Netherlands), and now a production upscale, the work has spanned the deaths of three parents in the artistic team, and a pandemic.
