Curious Shoes

Curious Shoes is a joyful performance for people living with dementia and their loved ones to share. This funny, entertaining and beautifully simple story comes to life through live music, movement and very few words.

The audience is invited on a curious voyage of discovery by four performers loosely based on film characters for whom shoes play an important role: Fred Astaire in Funny Face; Bette Davis in Now Voyager; Charlie Chaplin in City Lights and Vicky Page in The Red Shoes.

Curious Shoes has been created by Magdalena Schamberger. Magdalena is a creative collaborator, director, teacher and theatre maker with a special interest in developing performances with and for people living with dementia, their loved ones and those who care for them.
