The Memory Ensemble™: An Improvisational Theater Experience for Persons with Memory Loss is a pilot research program that offers individuals with memory loss a unique and enriching experience through the exploration of improvisational theatre.

As you may know, improvisational theater is a form of acting in which actors use techniques to perform spontaneously. No acting or performance experience is required!

We have worked with actors from the Lookingglass Theater to create this program. Focusing on the Lookingglass Theatre Company’s core values of invention, transformation, and collaboration, members of The Memory Ensemble will learn to use their instincts, creativity and spontaneity as they work together to explore and create improvisational theater. Workshops are led by Lookingglass Ensemble members and CNADC staff. 

Please contact Mary O'hara, MA, LCSW at 312.503.0604 or m-ohara@northwestern.edu if you know of anyone who might be interested in joining this program. Interviews are required. There is a cost to participate and scholarships are available.
