Mental Health and Coping with long term illness

We tackle the issues no one else can, devising serious drama about living with mental health
With masks and props, everyone can join the rehearsal and perform

During our drama workshops, we created a devised theatre piece about what life was like living with dementia, which was seen by family and friends who thought the experience wonderful.

We created a booklet for those living with dementia to read, which we took into the community to test with positive results, we found the sensory book was a wonderful tool to use and share with a relative or friend, it explains how it feels to have dementia, we created fun poems and coping strategies we found helped.

We even create booklets with poems, stories and their life experiences

The Red Sauce Theatre created a contemporary performance piece from the book
performed at the "Festival of the Mind" at Portsmouth Cathedral to create awarenness.

Red Sauce deliver training across management levels so whole teams feel supported and confident.

As the Dementia Specialist at the NMRN, I was responsible for the training across England and Ireland.  Rachel Goodall took part in Kensington Palaces resource “Rethinking Heritage” and was directly quoted.  Rachel has been norminated Internationally for her work in Dementia and the Arts

Red Sauce partnered with PAMODZI CREATIVES

for their Creative Transitions Schools Project 2021

We were so incredibly lucky to work with the wonderful Roni Edwards from Pamodzi Creatives,  creating a SOW from the PHSE curriculum.

The Victorian Lady, found herself lost in time, looking for the year 1919!!  She met lots of children on their way to school and talked in great length with them all about “The Spanish Flu” They in turn told her all that had been happening here in Portsmouth one hundred years later!! 

RED SAUCE THEATRE FUNDED ARE FUNDED BY ARTS AWARD £10,000 2015-2016

We went into our local community and into local care homes to deliver Performing Arts Workshops and Performances to the elderly and those living with dementia.

Two casts of people living with dementia, were in a film, they loved the drama classes and the whole experience of rehearsals and on the performance day, I was surprised to find them all waiting for me in full make-up and costume.  They enjoyed watching the films back, they also found it very funny that staff took part too.

We created booklets with their names and stories and poems we facilitated during the workshops, below are a few of the videos we made.
