About the event

Dark Matter is a Devised and Puppetry Performance. It is an exploration of how people with dementia cope with the end of their life, the end of their memory.

We use visual and physical theatre to dive into the universe of Alfi, an elder astrophysicist who lives with dementia. Star constellations and black holes merge in a race against the clock to discover meaning.

‘Dark Matter’ has been supported by The Arts Council, Care UK and Jewish Care. 

The show will be fellowed by a 15min Q&A

Reviews

"The fantastical portrayals of dementia are visually arresting. The puppet Alfi is deservedly the star of the show! A short piece of sharp physical theatre and compelling puppetry. The cast of four work well to show the hallucinations and fantastical aspects of Alfi’s mind, moving through the compelling choreography with ease.", Everything Theatre

"Dark Matter harnesses everything puppetry has to offer.", A younger theatre
