That I Have Gone Missing". This dance theatre production is grounded in the autobiographical experiences of people's diverse relationships. In probing the complexities of dementia, the work tackles social and medical taboos about loss, intimacy, vulnerability, consent and othering – inviting audiences to re-imagine everyday relating as small acts of embodied resistance. The work considers that dementia-friendly values are ubiquitous and can enrich our perceptions and relating in human and more-than-human ways. Since the work-in-progress tour to 1 1 venues during 2017-18 (UK, Norway, The Netherlands), and now a production upscale, the work has spanned the deaths of three parents in the artistic team, and a pandemic.
