On the Beach will be our next touring show for older people with dementia and their carers, exploring the myth, magic and danger 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.
