Living with dementia is living in the present and the past, all at once.
“三字经 3 Words, Repeat.” is about a real-life father and daughter duo reflecting on who they were and who they are at this point of their shared journey navigating through dementia. Through the honest act of theatre-making, they will learn to truly listen and lean on each other.
To recall, reclaim and relinquish the parallel journeys of a liberal, laughter-filled childhood and a challenging, unorthodox parenthood. They will switch, shift and shatter the identities of caregiver and care-receiver, whilst confronting the questions laid bare by this disease:
Is it really possible to just concede and not argue with dementia?
To forgive and forget past mistakes and misfortune?
To repeat every new day without a recurring sense of loss?
