Program Description


“Our vision is for a society where older people live longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives because they. Our mission is to provide participation and performance opportunities that celebrate the vitality of participants, consider the funny side of things and draw out the stuff of life. We use movement, music, spoken word and digital projection as ways of revealing and presenting peoples’ stories.”

“We are convinced that our unique peer-led approach, with its embedded element of public performance, exhibition or installation, brings deeper engagement and a stronger sense of well-being. Wherever possible we work with academic partners to evaluate our impact on the health and well-being of people who take part in our work.”

Moving Memory aims to provide a space where older adults can tell their own stories and express their individual identities.

In addition to the several productions and performances which are held, Moving Memory Dance Company also works within care homes to provide on-site Moving Well for Health programs encouraging older adults to move, perform and express themselves.
