We are now in Stage 3 of our project.

We are excited to be working in collaboration with Active Inquiry, an Edinburgh-based theatre and arts activist company, to conduct Online Forum Theatre Workshops and Performances with self-identifying older adults.

Active Inquiry and the research team will begin by working with a variety of groups and members of the public in a series of introductory online forum theatre workshops to explore and create narratives of the future as we age.

All of these workshops will be recorded as we are making a documentary film about this stage of the project with Rare Bird Media.

Following the introductory workshops Active Inquiry and the research team will be working with individuals interested in becoming part of the ‘Performance Group’ and work towards the creation and performance of their own ‘narratives of the future’. Again the rehearsals and final performances will be recorded for potential inclusion in the documentary film about the project being produced by Rare Bird Media.
