Spring Into Summer




This was a project made especially for care home residents and is touring across the north with Nwoko Arts. Director Elinor Randle interviewed residents of many homes about their memories of summers and holidays. She then devised and directed a performance made from those memories and using the residents voices.

"For our residents it is common to have complex needs surrounding memory loss, the show delivered small indicators of past experiences to the reisdents who were able to smile fondly at a fading memory, recall memories from the past, and in some cases talk to us animatedly about memories they had of similar experiences."
