Commissioned by the Dance Exchange and MetLife Foundation, these works feature intergenerational casts and were created to be performed both in traditional performance spaces, as well as in health care settings, such as hospitals, clinics, and rehabilitation centers. Themes include dementia, memory, and the shifting role of caretakers and caregivers.

Recollecting Disappearing, choreographed by Stephanie Miracle, asks audience members to change their view of the space and her multi-generational cast in this meditation on family and dementia.

Graham Brown’s The Better Half smashes expectations of physical paralysis in a duet threaded with love, memory, banter, and camaraderie.

In Martha Wittman’s Companion Dances, roles shift between caretaker and caregiver moment by moment. The duet was inspired by one caregiver who likens physical aid to ballroom dancing. *_

When Mind Moves Memory, _*choreographed by Shula Strassfeld and Keith Thompson,examines the power of memory through a duet for a young man and older woman. How do objects and people hold our memories when we’re no longer able to ourselves?

Michelle Pearson’s _Vespers _searches for meaning and hope in the face of disease, fatigue and weariness. This trio gives witness to the role of caregivers during end of life journeys.
