Theater Performance

Sandglass Theater’s D-Generation: An Exaltation of Larks

7:30 p.m.

Appleton Auditorium, Fuller Arts Center

D-Generation: An Exaltation of Larks explores the lives of individuals with late-stage dementia through storytelling. Performed by three puppeteers as the caregivers and five puppets as the residents of a care facility, audience members are walked through stories that feature the humorous, playful, and sometimes dark sides of dementia. Sandglass Theater’s performers collected the stories during 20 visits to care facilities, where people with dementia were guided through a story-making process called Timeslips.

General admission: $5

Students and senior citizens: $2

Funded in part by the New England Foundation for the Art’s National Theater Project, with lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
