On the Beach is our next touring sensory show, made for older people living with dementias and their carers. Join us as we explore the myth, magic of the beach and its rich history as a working space.
The show is inspired by the history of beaches as a working environment, all the stories and practical skills from net-mending to boatbuilding, varnishing, fishmongering, sail-mending, knitting and gutting.
The meeting of the natural environment and human endeavour that has through the ages and across all civilisations taken place on beaches offers a plentiful sensory playground, ripe for participatory theatre made for and with older people.
