Ballet Kelowna - Dance on Film: "One With".
About One With: A Message from Simone Orlando, choreographer and Artistic Director/CEO of Ballet Kelowna
My father recently moved into a long-term care home. The onset of dementia was rapid and made worse by the pandemic lockdown and subsequent isolation.
Although it is difficult for him to communicate, I know that he is thinking about and remembering things from his past. I know that there is an expansive inner world of thoughts, feelings, observations, and ideas that he is recollecting, processing, and trying to share with me when we spend time together.
One With looks at this inner space. It is about the people and memories that we hold onto and try to never forget. This piece also looks at the idea of companionship and support, something that is essential to the well-being of those living with dementia.
