Scottish Tour 2022 - Caught in This moment of time
Caught in This Moment of Time Scottish Tour 2022 is under way and the first week has been a huge success. We've been to Kirkwall (Orkney), Lerwick (Shetlands) and Boat of Garten (Highlands)
This week we are Forfar (Angus), Kirriemuir (Angus) and Edinburgh. There are still tickets available for our second week, please check out details below.
We started the tour by driving up to Scrabster and caught the ferry to Stromness and headed to Kirkwall. The first show went well receiving great feedback in the after play discussion with the audience. The following day we round some of the sights visiting a wonderful broach, before heading to back to Kirkwall for the overnight ferry to Lerwick.
Lerwick, Shetland Isles
Arriving early at the theatre we waited for it to open to start our Technical Rehearsal. Our second performance with our very talented dancer Louise Davidson had a great reception from the small but great audience. Followed by a good after play discussion with the audience about the themes of the play. The next day we explored the south of Shetland, going to the lighthouse at Sumburgh which is surrounded by puffins and loads of other birds. Then the late night baot to Aberdeen and onto Boat of Garten.
This week we are in Forfar and Kirriemuir (Angus), before finishing in Edinburgh. There are still tickets available, see details below.

Caught in This Moment of Time deals with some of the issues around the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in people living with dementia, and also deals with communication and how people perceive the capabilities of people around dementia comparing with the non-judgemental approach of AI.
The plays writer, Ron Coleman, describes the play as a way of raising a number of possible discussions with the audience. These include:
1: That the capabilities of people with dementia are often overlooked.
2: That AI has the potential to help us remain in our own homes for much longer if used properly.
3: The need to put in place effective planning methods that enables the interaction between AI and the person living with dementia.
4: Communication has be clearer and more honest than how it is at present.
