Blending research, storytelling, music and art, the tour showcases two nonfiction theater performances: Disrupt Dementia, in which Dr. Jennifer Carson of the University of Nevada, Reno, takes the stage with friends to combat fear and stigma related to dementia and open new possibilities for living well; and Life’s Most Dangerous Game, starring Dr. Bill Thomas, which disrupts ageism in a powerful and personal way. In partnership with the Sanford Center for Aging and the Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD), the Reno tour stop will also feature a special panel of local champions discussing Nevada’s dementia-capable system and opportunities for continued growth toward dementia-friendly and inclusive communities. Both performances are inclusive and welcoming to all people.

The performances explore:

  • The difference between truth and illusion when it comes to aging
  • Effective insights for better health and well-being gained from the wisdom of elders
  • Exciting possibilities for every stage of your life
  • Illuminating insights on what elders—including people living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease—can teach us about creating kind and inclusive communities
  • Our important role as an elder or elder-in-training
