A journey without a rudder into the land of dementia


Sommerblut Kulturfestival Köln

18. May 2012

People who suffer from dementia seem to be travelling into a different world, and very often it is unclear to those in good health what determines their route, or where they’re steering to. They live in a world of their own which to them is totally real, but which we as mere onlookers find very hard to negotiate. As a result the possibilities of establishing any real contact with them are necessarily limited.
In ANDERLAND five dementia patients and four professional actors set out on a mutual theatrical journey, looking to bridge the gap that separates them. The scenic collage visualizes alien as well as surprising aspects of dementia.

This Project was awarded the INNOVATIONSPREIS BEHINDERTENPOLITIK of the city of Cologne in 2012.
